Campus Ministry Events
Hello all! Welcome back! We are very excited to begin another semester alongside you at UB! Our event schedule will look a little different this semester as I will be away on maternity leave from Sept.-Oct. Our Student Masses, Wednesday Night Dinners, & UB Rooted Women’s Group will begin as usual, thanks to our amazing community.
Here is what the schedule will look like as the semester begins (with a little preview of what to look forward to later on!). Make sure to keep checking our Instagram for updates and reminders. Can’t wait to be back with you all soon!
Campus Ministry Events
Student Mass - Every Sunday, 6:30pm
“If we really understood the Mass, we would die of joy.” – Saint John Vianney
During the semester, our weekly student masses provide an opportunity for students to spend some time with Our Lord during the quiet of the evening and to start their week with renewed focus and love. There is a shuttle available; see below for the schedule. Come celebrate this beautiful sacrament with us and your peers!
UB Rooted - Tuesday, bi-weekly, 5:00pm (Starts Sept 4th)
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” — Colossian 2: 6-7
UBRooted is a women’s group for female college students who want to grow spiritually and in community with each other. Our purpose is to root our lives in the Lord through our faith and thankfulness for all He has done for us. We want all who come to our gatherings to better live this out in their own lives. Our name literally means ‘you be rooted (in Jesus)’.
Wednesday Night Dinner - Wednesday, weekly, 6:00pm (Starts Sept. 21st)
“If more of us valued food and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a much merrier world” – Thorin Oakenshield, “The Hobbit”
The Newman community looks forward to coming together each semester to plan, cook, and serve incredible meals for our students. This semester we will have free dinners every week until Dec. 7th (other than a brief hiatus the week of Thanksgiving). Looking forward to sharing meals with you all again! God bless the cooks!
Lunch with a Minister
“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.” – Amy Poehler
Lunch with a Minister serves as the opportunity for you to share a meal with a campus minister at UB. Leah will be available during these times at a table near the main entrance of the Student Union for anyone who would like to ask a question, have lunch, talk, or even just say ‘hi’!
Emmaus Reflection Group
“Did our hearts not burn when he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?” – Luke 24:32
This weekly on-campus reflection group provides an opportunity to all to spend some quiet time thinking over the lessons found in the Bible and the writings of the spiritual masters of the Christian tradition. We aim to inspire each other to ignite our own hearts with love for Christ and those around us.
“There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.” – Thomas Aquinas
Join us monthly for a night of fun for you and your friends! Nights include trivia, movies, snacks, games, bonfires, and more!
“Love is the greatest power for the transformation of reality because it pulls down the walls of selfishness and fills the ditches that keep us apart.” – Pope Francis
Crossing Bridges is a reading group for all young adults, ages 18-35, from all beliefs and stages in life, to come together and explore the importance of dialogue, true listening, and our spiritual journeys together. Also, we will be exploring what different wines and cheese taste like.
Adoration & Confessions
“It is better to be … the repentant thief who died with Jesus on Calvary … than the holy ones who had Him nailed to the cross.” – Thomas Merton
We offer adoration and confessions monthly to our students, community members, and visitors. We gather at Newman to worship before the blessed sacrament; to experience the healing of reconciliation; and to celebrate in song, chant, and word the blessings of God given through His presence in the Eucharist.
