Where Faith and Reason Meet


The Newman Catholic Campus Ministry at University Heights is part of the Newman Apostolate of the Archdiocese of Newark. For years, through the grace of the Holy Spirit, Newman Catholic has been dedicated to serving the students at Rutgers University - Newark, the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), and Essex County College.

By creating an awareness of the Catholic faith on each campus among students of each campus, providing publicity and personally outreaching to each campus, fostering a welcoming atmosphere to build community, and by sponsoring various special events for the enjoyment, benefit, and growth of the student communities, Newman Catholic seeks to point every person we meet to Christ.

In short, we seek to serve students in their spiritual, moral, and intellectual development and to help them enter into a deep, personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. All of this is done in accordance with the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. By doing all of this, we seek to present the truth, beauty, and goodness of the teachings of Christ and His Church to the students, faculty, and staff of the university communities we serve.
