Newman Catholic Fellowship

JOIN US | facebook |

The Newman Catholic Fellowship is a group for undergraduate students aged 25 and under at NYU and neighboring universities. The group meets every Thursday (7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.) for dinner and fellowship, and additional service and spiritual opportunities are available on a regular basis.

Have questions about the Catholic faith? The Bible? The Church’s teachings?

Do you want to know more about the Virgin Mary, salvation, or Jesus Himself?

Drop by for study or some friendly conversation. Delicious dinners are shared at each meeting, and all are welcome. Although the club presents the Catholic voice on campus, our members come from various religious traditions and backgrounds. We strive to strengthen each other in our growth with Christ, and to encourage each other as we try to fulfill the purpose which Christ entrusted to His Church: to be the light of the world. The Newman Catholic Fellowship also gives back to the community through outreach and service projects. Established in 1894, Newman Catholic Fellowship is the oldest undergraduate Catholic social organization at NYU.

I am originally from Colombia, but grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. Growing up seeing so much diversity is what made me want to move to New York City! One of my favorite things to do here is sit at Joe’s Coffee on Waverly Place and journal or read (preferably anything Theology of the Body or Jane Austen). I am currently a Junior at The King’s College and love being able to study theology and philosophy with my peers there, but when I came across the Catholic Center I really felt at home. The Center has provided a space for fruitful relationships that have both challenged and nourished my faith. I can say with confidence that it was pure providence and grace that lead me to the Catholic Center last semester, so it is an honor for me to serve on this wonderful team!

I was born in Abuja, Nigeria where I lived until I was about three when my family moved to New Jersey, then Texas, then back to Nigeria and finally to New Jersey again.I moved around frequently and attended 9 different schools within the first 16 years of my life. That being said, coming to NYU, and more specifically, the Catholic Center at NYU and finding a place where I felt accepted—and genuinely liked being— felt like an amazing grace that I’m very thankful I was able to receive. I love being a part of the E-board now, I would love to help others experience the same joy that I received when I first started coming to the Catholic Center. I look forward to serving you all in this position!
