News and Announcements
Class of 2020
Congratulations on being accepted to the University of Rochester, and welcome to the Catholic Newman Community, your "home away from home."
"Newman proved to be the most welcoming community on campus. Participating has not only allowed me to forge some great friendships, but also to create a sense of belonging here in Rochester." – Lucas Avelar '19
"Adjusting to college can be really scary; going to mass that first week felt like going home for an hour. It was comfortable and familiar when everything else around me was totally new." – Maura Jebb '18
"I would highly recommend coming to the Chapel to see how Newman makes Catholicism accessible and enjoyable for college students specifically." – Griffin Cunningham '19
"Joining the Newman community has built me both spiritually and socially. I have received a family that keeps me well and cares for me regardless; walking with me in every step. It is more than just a spiritual family!" – Sophia Kaganda '19
We have many exciting events planned for the start of the coming year and hope you might join us for Newman Night, a free home-cooked meal every Tuesday; Big Newman/Little Newman, to connect with an upperclassman and get to know the college and Newman firsthand; and of course, Sunday Mass at 10:30am for those who like to get up early and 7pm for those who like to sleep in.
