Mission Statement

As part of the evangelistic mission of the Church, the Catholic Newman Center serves the Catholic Campus community at the University of Houston through liturgy, fellowship, prayer and education. As a welcoming faith community we offer service and leadership education and experience, spiritual guidance, pastoral care, faith development and education, and recreational and social opportunities, framing people for their active roles as laypersons, religious, and priests in the Church and in the world.
