Daily Christian Prayer

Saint of the Day

Saint of Day gives a short biography of the saint whose feast we celebrate each day of the year.


Pasta night, every Thursday evening, is a time to socialize with other students and engage in conversation.
You are invited to join us. Come and bring a friend.

Date: Thursday
Place: Newman House, 359 Old Westport Road (left out of campus to second house on the left)
Time: 6:00pm

Mass Schedule

The Catholic Community gathers for Sunday Mass at 1:00pm 7pm. Even though we do not have a church building on campus, we are the Church that gathers to pray and bring to God our needs and the needs of our brothers and sisters. We also ask for what we need to help us live as Christians for the upcoming week. Join us to pray and share our faith.

Sundays: 1:00pm and 7pm Reflection Room, second floor of the Campus Center (near the elevator)

Mondays at 5:00 pm and Wednesdays: 12:10pm Reflection Room 233 second floor of Campus Center

Thursdays at 5:00 pm - Newman House Chapel

Readers: If you were a reader in your parish, consider reading for Mass here on campus. 

Hospitality: Help is needed with setting up for Mass, we need to move the chairs and tables to change the atmosphere. Also, help with the pizza and refreshments after Mass would be a way to support the community.
