Catholic Campus Ministry would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to CCSU. We are here to walk with you and help you develop your spiritual self as we journey together through the college years. We hope to be a positive alternative on Campus, and to offer activities that will build us up both as individuals and as a community.
We would like to invite you to come and visit us at the Newman House which is located just across the street from the Robert C. Vance Academic Center and the Seth North Residence Hall and is just a short 3-minute walk from the Student Center. (NH on the Campus Map) As a student at CCSU you will have many opportunities to meet new people, study many subjects and continue to learn more about who you are and what your talents are and Catholic Campus Ministry and the Newman House are here to help you get the most out of your college experience. We offer hospitality and spirituality; a place to come and hang out, have a cup of coffee, eat lunch, watch TV, study, or play chess or cards between classes; a place to come for some quiet time to think about what's going on in your life, say a prayer, and take the opportunity to relax in an atmosphere that will help you to be your true self here on Campus. Commuters are welcome to use the Newman House as their “home base” before, after and between classes; those of you who will live on Campus are welcome to stop by and take advantage of our hospitality and spend some time with other like minded students.
We would also like to invite you to join the Newman Club, a University recognized student club whose goal is to model the Catholic faith through their actions in the CCSU community and beyond. The club meets weekly throughout the school year and is open to new members.
Catholic Mass is offered on Sunday evening at 6:00 PM in the Sprague Room of the Student Center. If you cannot join us for our on campus Mass, please attend St. Francis Parish, served by the Franciscan Friars, on Stanley St just a block behind Welte Auditorium. Their Saturday evening Mass is at 4:30 PM and Sunday Mass is at 8:00 and 10:00 AM. We hope this can be a time each week to pray and support each other as we experience the ups and downs of college life.
As the Catholic Campus Minister at CCSU, I look forward to meeting you!
