Newman Catholic Fellowship

The Newman Catholic Fellowship is the meeting place 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 fellowship opportunities are available on a regular basis.

Have questions about the Catholic faith? The Bible? The Church’s teachings on sex, war, or social justice? Do you want to know more about the Virgin Mary, salvation, or Jesus Himself? Drop by for study or some friendly discussion. Delicious dinners are provided at each meeting, and all are welcome. Although the club represents the Catholic voice on campus, its members come from various religious traditions and backgrounds. Its goal is to strengthen each other in our walks 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. It also strives to give back to the community through outreach and service projects.

Established in 1894, it is the oldest undergraduate Catholic social organization on campus.

I’m a Latino plus an Urban Planning nerd from Georgia that speaks Italian and loves dancing, food, traveling, and going to the gym. I’m super excited about being Newman VP so I can get everyone who walks through the doors of this center to experience what I have here: the Catholic Center at NYU has been my home while at this college and in this hectic city. It’s helped me navigate the good and the bad of every semester, keeping me focused on God’s plan for me at every moment, surrounding me with friends along the way striving to know God’s incredible love for us. It can’t get any better than this. Can’t wait to meet y’all!

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but I’m definitely a New Yorker at heart. I absolutely love coffee, Broadway, traveling, and just wandering around New York City. The Catholic Center has quickly become a second home for me — a place to hang out with friends, study, or relax by the fireplace. I’m so incredibly exited to welcome you into our Catholic Community here at NYU!

I grew up in Beijing, China, but I love learning about different cultures. Coming to NYC, I am fascinated by the story of each person. It’s a grace from God and a great joy for me to get to know someone and build friendships! Newman Club here is a little home away from home, and I’m excited to welcome you and meet you!
