Who We Are

We are the Newman Center Catholic Community undergraduate students who found a home at this extremely welcoming and diverse community, whose primary ministry is to serve the spiritual and social needs of the students at UCSD. We invite you to join us, all are welcome, to experience Christ’s presence in Word, Eucharist, and one another.

Ongoing Events


All are invited to celebrate at one or both Sunday Masses at the Newman Center, once a month on-campus at the Monthly Late-Night On-Campus Mass, and once a Quarter at Sunset Mass at Scripps Coastal Reserve overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. There is Daily Mass Tuesday – Friday, as well as Mass on Holy Days. Check out Mass Times for all times and locations.

Even as we prepare to rejoice in his birth, we can remember to ask him to be with us in our troubles, both large and small. Matthew 1:18-25. Read more
