Director’s Welcome

Welcome and Hospitality are hallmarks of the Newman Center Catholic Community at UC San Diego and have been since its foundation. It is with great joy that I welcome you to a year of Jubilee as we celebrate the 50th year of the Newman Center.

On behalf of the staff I welcome you — new students, returning students, faculty, staff, young adults, recent grads, resident community members and friends. As we gather for our annual Welcome Mass and BBQ, my prayer for this coming year is to fully embrace the values of Reaching Out, Doing Justice, Sharing Our Belief, Cultivating Faith, Embracing Diversity, and the list goes on.

May the peace of Christ accompany us on our journey of discovery,

Fr. John Paul Forté, OP
Director of the Newman Center

Fall Retreat – 10/3/2015

By | September 15th, 2015|

You know that feeling when you don’t really know anyone, but it’s welcome week so you attend random events like “Boba Night for Sixth College or “BONDfire at La Jolla Shores.” It’s that feeling of being social and spontaneous that students get at the beginning of the year before realizing that the next few weeks of the quarter are going to be insanely busy.

Who is St. Dominic?

By | February 9th, 2016|

St. Dominic envisioned a life of quiet service to God. A man of high education and nobility, who was destined for a good life, separated from the conflicts and concerns of life's daily dramas. The problem was that he was gifted. His life was a light destined to proclaim good news to the poor and the liberating message of God's truth....to hearts, minds, and souls held in captivity.
