College students welcome!

As of September 2015, this ministry has helped college-aged students, ages 18-21, connect with their faith, parish, and friends. Whether currently in college or not, if you or a friend are between the ages of 18 & 21, this ministry is for you!

Highlighting Nativity College Students On-Campus Ministry Stories


Maureen Sawyer, Virginia Tech Newman Catholic Campus Ministry
“At Virginia Tech, the Newman Catholic Campus Ministry is a great community to get involved with to meet new friends and strengthen your faith! We have 3 Masses every Sunday(10am12pm8pm), small group bible studies, retreats, and lots of social events. The Newman House on Otey St. (near Squires Student Center) is the perfect place to hang out, do homework, play sand volleyball out back, watch movies, go to adoration, or attend daily mass! My favorite Newman events have been Praise and Worship, Mountaintop Sunset Mass, Casino Night, and the Masquerade Ball hosted by our Knights of Columbus and Daughters of Isabella. We also have Sunday Suppers with FREE dinner, dessert, a speaker, and fellowship every Sunday at 6pm. Our Alternative Winter or Spring Break trips are also a great part of Newman. I had an amazing experience in Mexico this winter focusing on solidarity and faith with 6 other Catholic Hokies!
Newman has really helped me stay engaged and strengthen my faith in college, giving me a supportive community of friends and mentors. They have something for everyone no matter where you are on your faith journey. Whether you are still learning how to look up a verse in the bible or if you go to daily mass regularly, there’s a place for you at Newman!

Summer College Mission Trip to Haiti!

From Hannah Griffith, participant on the 2017 trip:
“One specific little girl captured my heart. After visiting with the children in cribs lined along the walls of one of the housing units, I came across a little girl named Shelove in her crib in the back of the room. She had a cast on one of her legs and would motion to me to take her outside. Soon she found herself being carried around by myself and friends on the trip. The leaders with Food For The Poor and Nativity reminded us that money was not the only way to show we care and the joy we brought to children like Shelove made an impact she may remember for the rest of her life. What a beautiful treat it was to experience the world through the eyes of those at the Little Children of Jesus.”
