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
Newman Gala tickets are hot off the press. Our second annual Gala’s tickets are $75 for adults and $50 for students and can be purchased using the button below. Save the date, November 7, for this extraordinary party at Our Mother of Confidence Hall. We need baskets for the silent auction. We need your help in spreading the word about the dinner, silent and live auction, and entertainment with Newman’s best. Stop by and say hi to some committee members outside after Mass.
The community here is unique in that it’s very friendly. It is a like a home away from home. You can relax and come hang out with friends.
The preaching is engaging, intellectually and personally connected, spiritually helpful and relatable to where both students and non-students are in their lives.
We strive to seek the Truth in Love.
