The mission of NEWMAN CATHOLIC CAMPUS MINISTRY is to help students grow in their faith through spiritual, social and community outreach programs. We do this through helping each other deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church which he founded.
Newman Catholic Campus Ministry was established at Montclair State University in 1950. After years of steady growth, in 1967, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark purchased the Newman Catholic Center and assigned a full-time Priest-Chaplain, Fr. Tom Davis as Chaplain and Director. From its earliest days, the “Newman group” has had a partnership between the Archdiocese and the University with the mutual goal of assisting the growth and development of the students.
