Newman Catholic Students’ Association

About us:
Welcome! We are a group of young Catholic students committed to deepening our faith through fellowship, scripture, and prayer. We seek to glorify God by supporting each other in living out the fullness of life in Christ through the awesome teachings of the Catholic Church. We meet students where they are, encouraging open honest discussion about our culture and faith. Jesus said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations” (Mt 28:19). Our ultimate goal is to become the presence of Christ on campus, giving God permission to do what He wants to do in our lives. We explore many faith-related topics at our Tuesday meetings, including salvation, sin, the Trinity, Mary, the Eucharist and other Sacraments, the lives of the Saints, etc. We also discuss controversial “hot topics” such as homosexuality, contraception, and abortion, in the hopes that we can both understand our faith and be able to share it with others with greater clarity. We regularly engage in prayer through lectio divina (prayerful reading of the Scriptures), praise and worship, and other forms of prayer. We meet as a club every other Tuesday from 6:30PM – 7:30PM on Zoom or in-person (subject to change due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In-person location TBD). We also meet on alternating weekends in a more relaxed social atmosphere. We have fun activities such as laser tag, movie nights and games nights, men’s and women’s nights, and lots of parties with food. We also volunteer to give back to the London community, at locations such as St. Joseph’s Hospitality Centre and the London Food Bank (subject to change due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic).

Contact us at newmancatholic.club@westernusc.ca for more information on how you can get involved.
