Thank you from Our Lady of Hope
Thank you to the generous Newman Center community for the thoughtful, beautiful books and gift cards. The children were thrilled to receive them!

Fr. Pat’s Split Club is Back!
The Newman Center Split Club begins in late November. Last year was the most successful year to date, donating approximately $30,000 to the Newman Center! This is used to support the many activities and programs of our community as well as campus ministry. We hope you will consider joining this year.
Drawings are held the Newman Center at 8:30 AM on the last Sunday of every month. Each month, $1,200 in prizes are distributed. In addition, a special $500 Christmas drawing will be held in mid-December and a St. Patrick’s Day $500 drawing will be held in mid-March. With each membership comes one ticket for a banquet in May (valued at $40) at Sean Patrick’s Restaurant. At the banquet, an additional $2,500 in prizes will be drawn.
The cost for a membership is $200. We hope you will help us continue this tradition to assist the Newman Center with our mission. Split Club entries can be purchased online by filling out the form below and then paying here. Paper entries are available at the Newman Center – or you can download and print this PDF form. Questions? Call Veronica at 716-691-5190 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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
