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.

We can find the words grace and mercy used in the same context and sometimes in the same sentence in the Bible. Do they mean the same thing? And if not, what is the difference? Mercy is a [...]

We are invited to Encounter Mercy

By |December 11th, 2015|

Seeing the great need for mercy and healing in the world, Pope Francis called for the Year of Mercy—a special period, also known as a Holy Year or Jubilee Year, for the Catholic Church. It is a time for the Church across the world to take approximately a year to focus on forgiveness and healing in a special way. Pope Francis has asked us as individuals and as a Church “to be a witness of mercy” by reflecting on and practicing the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
