You do not need to register to attend Mass at the Newman Center.

  • Please wear a mask while attending Mass at the Newman Center. Thank you.
  • You can watch our 9 AM mass live on our Facebook page (UB Newman) or watch it later on our Facebook page or on our YouTube account.

Communion services are held on Wednesday and Friday at Noon with Deacon Mike.



With 201 families and individuals contributing, the Newman Center has raised $107,911 – exceeding our 2021 goal by more than $10,000! We thank you and, more importantly, our Western New York neighbors in need thank you!

While our community has exceeded its goal, the overall campaign still needs to raise about $1.7 million to reach its $10 million goal. The real needs in WNY as we continue to recover from the pandemic are great and falling short of the goal means some of our neighbors will not receive the help that they need. So, if you haven’t yet contributed, please still consider doing so.

No contribution is too small — or too large! To contribute you can return pledge cards to either Catholic Charities or the Newman Center. You may also donate online at ccwny.org/donate. Our parish code (in a dropdown menu) is 0768.

Many of us in the Newman community have been truly blessed. As you consider your support of Catholic Charities, please keep these words of St. Peter in mind, “As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’ s varied grace.”

Again, thank you so much for enabling us to reach the parish goal for 2021!! And, as always, thanks for all you do for our community and our neighbors in need.

Fr. Pat Keleher - Director

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, Fr-Pat-Sig

Msgr. J. Patrick Keleher – “Fr. Pat” Director The Newman Center at UB

STUDENTS: Please visit our Campus Ministry page for more student information.
