The Association of Catholic Students (aka Newman Club) is an official club of the University of Oregon. Membership is open to all current students who are Catholic, or interested in the Catholic faith.
The peer ministers and Student Activities Leadership Team (SALT), which is composed of a group of sophomore, junior, and senior student leaders, are committed to being a connection to the University of Oregon for other students, especially freshmen. It’s a great way to stay connected to our Catholic faith, make close friends, have a spiritual support, and have fun!!
The SALT team hosts quarterly retreats for all students! Each retreat focuses on a different spiritual and/or intellectual aspect of our faith, but they all offer a great opportunity to meet other Catholic students and spend time in fellowship and prayer. Retreats are typically from Friday afternoon to noon Sunday, and are held at St. Benedict Lodge in McKenzie Bridge, OR.
Wednesday Night Confession & Mass
Available weekly on Wednesday nights during the school year are: Candlelight Mass which takes place at 8 PM every Wednesdays, and confessions available at 7PM-8PM.
Sunday Night Supper
Feed the soul and the body! Every Sunday during the academic year after the 7:30pm Mass, come downstairs to the Newman Center for dinner. Meet other students, make new friends and members of the community and enjoy a free dinner!!
Small Groups are a great way for students to build a closer, more tight knit community centered around the Catholic faith and common life experiences. Our current small groups are:
