Wednesday night dinners are a time when students and volunteers interact and get to know and learn from one another. Under the guidance of our chief cooks, Liz Papke and Debbie Brown, dedicated volunteers have prepared many, tasty new recipes this year. A joyful, Spring time student told me this week, “Thanks. It’s the only night I look forward to. Otherwise, PB & J.” Our numbers continue to grow. Please consider making a donation to help us to defray some of the cost of these events.read more
Whether prospective or incoming, we are thrilled to have you!
We are honored to be among the first to welcome you to University at Buffalo! We hope that this page about opportunities to participate in your faith life during college will either inspire you to come to UB, or excite you about the years that await you in Buffalo. You will be among the first generation of UB students who will have a permanent sacred place for celebration of the Word, Sacraments, prayer, community building and so much more. College is full of new experiences — some exciting, some difficult — and both faith in God and a supportive faith community can help ease the transition. We here at the Newman Center feel privileged for the opportunity to walk alongside you during your time at UB and share with you in prayer, fellowship and other activities. The Newman Center, Catholic Campus Ministry at UB, often acts as a “home away from home” for students. We offer a warm, welcoming environment for prayer and faith, as well as a dynamic community that relishes in sharing time and energy with one another. We recently opened a new “state of the art” campus ministry center for you and those students who come after you. During your years at UB we strive to:
- Help clarify values in a time of exploration
- Build a sense of Catholic identity and understanding through education, reflection and discussion
- Form leaders in the world and for the Church through service and empowerment
And do all of this in the context of faith, through a vibrant spiritual center. You will find many opportunities for group and individual faith-sharing, retreats, investigation into Catholicism, service and prayer. Please feel free to contact a staff member for more information. At Newman, “it’s all about the students.” We truly look forward to having you join us. Peace and all good things,
Msgr. J. Patrick Keleher – “Fr. Pat” Director The Newman Center at UB
