The Office of Young Adult and Campus Ministry seeks to provide a home for young adults within the Catholic Church and accompany young adults in their journey with Christ through their late teens, 20s, and 30s. The Office of Young Adult & Campus Ministry seeks to bring a Catholic presence to the colleges and universities located within the archdiocese. Through Catholic Newman Centers, we seek to create environments where Catholic students can find community, encounter Christ in prayer and the sacraments, and be formed as disciples of Jesus. We also seek to evangelize the entire academic community and invite others into the joy, fulfillment, and truth of living the Gospel.

Catholic Campus Ministry Centers are often called "Newman Centers" after John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890). An Anglican theologian at Oxford, he became a Catholic in 1844, and left a legacy as an important Catholic theologian and apologist. His notable works include An Essay on the Development of Doctrine and Apologia Pro Vita Sua. His Idea of a University is a classic in theory of higher education.
