Newman Catholic Centers

Mission Statement

At the Newman Catholic Center we share and celebrate our faith in the Lord Jesus. Our mission is to welcome, develop, and walk with college students.

  • Belonging: A Catholic community on campus 
  • Believing: Learning and living our Catholic faith
  • Becoming: Building up the Body of Christ


The Newman Catholic Centers in the Diocese of Sacramento are places where college students encounter Jesus Christ.  Through a relationship with Jesus Christ and Catholic fellowship college students grow in faith to build up the Church on campus, in their parish, and in the world.  The Newman Centers proclaim our Catholic faith in both words and deeds, encouraging contemplation and action in the lives of students. Vocational discernment is actively encouraged in order to develop passionate, life-long disciples of Jesus Christ.
