Message From Our Director
The Newman Center at YSU is a Catholic Campus Ministry community rooted in the transformative spirit of Vatican II, called to serve and empower the students, faculty and staff for leadership and ministry. Worship is the source and summit of all that we do, it is centered in Christ, creative, inclusive and life-giving. Our facility will be an accessible, well-used and holy space that serves our YSU family and the greater community. All will be welcomed with a warmth and hospitality that permeates to others. We will be a center of evangelization and ongoing faith formation for Catholics which offers progressive programs, retreats, and courses in theology, justice, scripture and spiritual growth. We recognize our own prophetic, cutting-edge nature and are willing to push boundaries in order to facilitate the transformation of our members and the greater world. So, when you are on campus, stop by and check us out!
