Catholic campus ministry has played an important role at NDSU since 1928, when 36 students came together to form the Catholic Students’ Club. Today, that ministry is thriving at St. Paul’s Newman Center, where thousands of students have actively engaged and benefitted from a holistic Catholic formation – encouraging them in their pursuit of such virtues as chastity, sobriety, and excellence, so much needed in today’s society and culture.
As a “home-away-from-home,” the Newman Center not only tends to the daily spiritual needs of students, but also provides a place for hundreds of students to form faith-based relationships every day. Through our hugely successful FOCUS campus ministry program, the Newman Center provides opportunities for YOUTH to minister to YOUTH – with over 70 student-led bible studies on campus, men’s and women’s groups, and various social activities every week.
Without the presence of the Newman Center on campus, much would be lost. Our future leaders would have no guidance in their pursuit of virtue, nor would they have a “home” to come to when the epidemic of moral problems, such as pre-marital sex, drug and alcohol addictions, pornography, and same-sex unions, push themselves upon our students and they have nowhere else to turn. Finally, amidst rampant poverty and greed, there would be no stewardship of time, talent, and treasure, except in the pursuit of self-fulfillment. God has blessed us profusely with this opportunity to spread the Gospel and carry on the legacy of the Catholic Faith through many generations.
