The celebration of the Mass is the source and summit of the Catholic faith. This Liturgical Celebration is the center of all that we do at Newman Catholic. Student Mass is celebrated every Sunday at Saint Patrick's Pro-Cathedral at 7 PM.
Our weekly faith formation event is centered on Christian fellowship, building relationships, rest, recharge, and chill. We begin the night with Eucharistic Adoration (prayer before the Blessed Sacrament). Afterwards, we gather together for a meal, a talk, conversation, and we end with a short prayer.
If you are Catholic and want to learn the “why” of your faith, if you are non-Catholic and are just curious about Catholicism, or if you just want some free food, then you are welcome to join us and learn more about the Faith!
Every Monday night at 7 PM at the Newman Center. All college-age young adults are welcome to join us!

Explore your faith in friendship with small group Bible studies! This is where we can enter into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. It is here where the "ever ancient" becomes "ever new." Bible Study dates and times to be announced for the Fall. Our first series will be on Salvation History.
ST. JOHN'S Soup Kitchen
We are blessed at Newman Catholic to be connected to the apostolic mission of Saint Patrick's Pro-Cathedral and Saint John's, whose mission is to work with the poor & homeless, and to evangelize. One of the ways in which Saint John's carries out this critical work is by operating a soup kitchen in the heart of Downtown Newark. Everyday, from Tuesday to Saturday, many hungry Newarkers walk through the doors of their Soup Kitchen. They come to get a warm nutritious meal, and companionship. We volunteer by greeting guests, cooking, serving food, and cleaning. One of the most important things we do is treat the guests with dignity and respect. Sign up and make a difference today!

Location: Saint John's Church, 22 Mulberry Street Newark, NJ 07102-5202
Extra Mile is the Homeless Outreach Ministry of Newman Catholic. This weekly program is a great opportunity to engage the homeless of Newark, who appreciate not only the food we bring, but also the fellowship we share with them. Extra Mile runs every Friday from 5:30 - 8 PM. For more information, click here.
“The danger nowadays is that people no longer know how to celebrate and eat together. (...) In order to create unity, to live as a body, we need to know how to take time over meals, to eat well ... We need to know how to tell stories, our own stories, and to laugh and sing together.” - Jean Vanier
The Newman Café focuses on the intersection of the Catholic faith and the modern world. The goal is to further the intellectual formation of students and staff while challenging them to think broadly about our ancient tradition and how it plays a role in modern society and our daily lives. Therefore, once a month, we bring in a guest speaker to help us learn how to incorporate our faith into our daily lives - in various contexts. Dates and speakers to be announced.
Every year, in November, we get together with the other Catholic Campus Ministries in the Archdiocese of Newark for an Intercollegiate Retreat. There will be other opportunities to go on retreat as well, just with our ministry and with other young adults from around the Archdiocese.
