Community is an essence of life, we need each other to survive and community helps us to work together to advance and grow to our full potential. Community is the safe environment that we can be ourselves and are loved for who we are. Newman was a great community that fosters’ both spiritual, physical and academical growth.
“My girlfriend introduced me to Newman my senior year of high school and I really enjoyed the community and atmosphere. Once I got on campus my freshman year at UMD it was really easy to jump right in and get involved with all great people there! Between the Father Mike and the missionaries at Newman, I have grown in my faith more than I could ever have imagined would a few years ago. They just seem to understand me as a college student and where I’m coming from in my faith. Plus they make it a blast!”
“College is a time in which people need to ask questions and discover truth. The Newman Center has provided a wealth of opportunities to grow in faith and become the person I’m to be. The moment you step into the Newman house you are surrounded by the most dynamic and interesting people you may not have otherwise had the chance to meet.”
“There are a lot of different clubs, teams, and communities on campus but the Newman community is different from the rest. I’ve worked at a couple different places on campus and I’m also a part of a few clubs but Newman provides a way to connect with people on a deeper level, more so than just with your coworkers or club peers. I choose to serve through Newman because there is an opportunity at every moment to commit to someone or something. What I mean is there are many ways to serve. Either literally serving at Mass, participating in the Service Saturday projects that are held throughout the year, or perhaps something of your own choosing.”
