Find friendships you never knew you needed!

Our Bible studies are relevant, challenging, and a great way to learn the faith and apply it to your life. We have studies that meet all over campus with all types of people.

Ready to take your faith to the next level? Join a Discipleship Group!

Discipleship at the UK Newman Center is a small-group oriented program that is for the formation of student’s faith and understanding of the Catholic Faith. We will break down the Fullness of Faith and Doctrines of the Catholic Church that define our practices so that we, the next generation of Catholics, have a strong foundation in our convictions of the Church.

Based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, we will take 4 semesters to go through the 4 sections of the Catechism. Students who have previously or are currently participating in bible studies are invited to join our discipleship program.
