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 - 2nd & 4th Mondays, 5:00pm (starts Sept. 11th)

“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. 13, 2023)

“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. Looking forward to sharing meals with you all again! God bless the cooks!


Lunch with a Minister - Tuesday, weekly, 11:00am-2:00pm

“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 - Thursday, weekly, 1:00pm (starts Sept. 14th)

“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.

Please follow us on Instagram for our meeting location each week.

Newman Nights - First & Third Thursdays, 7:00pm (starts Sept. 21st)

“There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.” – Thomas Aquinas

Join us twice a month for a night of fun for you and your friends! Nights include trivia, movies, snacks, games, bonfires, and more!

Coffee & Confessions - First Saturday, monthly, 10:00 AM (starts Oct. 7th)

“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

Experience the healing power of reconciliation and grow in devotion to the Eucharist as we travel to downtown Buffalo at the beginning of each month for confession and mass. Afterward, we spend some time with each other exploring different coffee shops and cafes in the downtown area or Elmwood!
