A place to call home

For over 50 years, Holy Spirit Parish has served the University of Kentucky as a dynamic and vibrant church community. The Catholic Newman Center gives Catholic Wildcats a physical and spiritual home—a place to belong, to grow in faith, and to challenge themselves to live out the Gospel message.

A rich expression of faith

The experience of students and other parishioners at the Catholic Newman Center is rooted in a rich expression of Catholic spirituality. From sacred liturgies to personal bible studies, men and women at every level are invited, welcomed, and challenged to grow in their faith. The Gospel message of Jesus is made present every day as they are formed in their faith, led to a real encounter with Christ, and called to serve others.

All are welcome

Please consider this your invitation to join us at our weekly liturgies and other special events. Whether you are a member of the UK community or just a resident of Lexington, whether you are just beginning college or have long since retired, and whether you are a lifelong Catholic or have never set foot in a Catholic parish—here, you are welcome in Christ’s name.
