Students, We’re Here For You!

We are a Catholic community on a mission to form relationships, lead others to Jesus, and equip students to leave the University of Kentucky as a disciple of Christ.

Have a question about the faith?  Wonder how to get involved?  Just want to chat?

Whether you’re a freshman or grad student, we’ve been there!  We know the challenges of navigating college life and sometimes you need to have a coffee with a friend and talk about it.

Take a look at what we have to offer, and feel free to reach out at any time!

Form Community

We want to personally invite you to join our community. We have a range of activities for all students, whether you are Catholic or just interested in learning more about the faith. Come visit us and join a small weekly bible study, attend one of our weekly events, or just hang out with us in the student lounge!

Form Community

Encounter Christ

Here at Newman, our Catholic Wildcats are encouraged to encounter Christ in their daily lives, not just on Sunday. There are opportunities for you to join us in worship every day of the week.

Encounter Christ

Serve Others

Giving back to the community is an essential aspect of the Christian faith. College life can be isolating, and we want to encourage our Catholic Wildcats to get outside of their dorm rooms and into the greater community. Our service opportunities include a wide range of time commitments, from simply placing care packages in your car to distribute to the homeless, to leadership opportunities with our CORE Team.
