Guiding the way
Making a difference
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.
Committed and here for you.
Claire McMullin was a teacher in her former life and comes to the Catholic Newman Center after 9 years of parish youth and college/young adult ministry. As Campus Minister, helping college students draw closer to God and the love He has for them is one of her passions! She loves to explore different cultures through travel or journeying through books. When she’s not at work, Claire can be found painting or drinking coffee at a local coffee house with husband of 13 years. Learning new things is exciting to Claire, and she is currently working on her Master’s Degree in Faith and Culture at the University of St. Thomas.
