The Catholic Center at NYU has as its particular task to supply the spiritual and pastoral needs of the Catholic students at NYU. It seeks to witness to the Catholic Church's presence in the wider society of New York City. The mission is accomplished first of all through celebrating the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist and Confession. In addition to the Sacramental life, the Center provides opportunities for students to grow in knowledge of the faith. The chaplain also guides the activities of the various Catholic student groups on campus. The Catholic Center welcomes any and all who wish to know more about God and the Catholic Church.
