University Parish

The Newman Centre’s St. Thomas Aquinas Parish Community finds its fullest and richest expression in our celebration of the Eucharist - both the Sunday assembly and the daily celebrations of Mass.

Chaplaincy Outreach to Students

“The university chaplaincy is a place of the Spirit, a training ground for Christian values, a welcoming and open home for those who seek the truth”  - Pope John Paul II’s Address to Congress of European University Chaplains in Rome, 1998
