Newman Catholic Fellowship

facebook | contact:, or Andrew Stola (

The Newman Catholic Fellowship is the meeting place for undergraduate students aged 25 and under at NYU and neighboring universities. The group meets every Thursday (7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.) for dinner and fellowship, and additional service and fellowship opportunities are available on a regular basis.

Have questions about the Catholic faith? The Bible? The Church's teachings on sex, war, or social justice? Do you want to know more about the Virgin Mary, salvation, or Jesus Himself? Drop by for study or some friendly discussion. Delicious dinners are provided at each meeting, and all are welcome. Although the club represents the Catholic voice on campus, its members come from various religious traditions and backgrounds. Its goal is to strengthen each other in our walks with Christ, and to encourage each other as we try to fulfill the purpose which Christ entrusted to His Church: to be the Light of the World. It also strives to give back to the community through outreach and service projects.

Established in 1894, it is the oldest undergraduate Catholic social organization on campus.
