The chaplains at the Catholic Center have as their particular task to supply the spiritual and pastoral needs of the Catholic students at NYU. They also seek 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, with and for the NYU community. In addition to the Sacramental life, the chaplains seek to make the Catholic Faith better known and more deeply understood. The chaplains also guide the activities of the various Catholic student groups on campus. In the end, they serve the needs of any and all who wish to know more about God and the Catholic Church.
Our two chaplains—Father Allan White and Father Sebastian White—are Dominican friars. Father Allan served at the chaplaincy at NYU since the fall of 2012, and Father Sebastian has served since the fall of 2014.
