What Students Say About Us

“I’m thankful for the ability to meet people at Newman who share my Catholic beliefs and morals…I couldn’t do it alone …I doubt if I would have made it through college sane without Newman, because of all of the personal and spiritual support I’ve received there.  …Without Newman, I would be by myself wading through college life, but Newman provides a focus point for my spiritual life.”

What Students Say About Us

“I came to Truman not knowing if I wanted to be Catholic. The more time I spent at Newman and saw the lives that the people there led, I knew I wanted to dive into my Catholic faith. Through learning about Theology of the Body, going to a Bible study, and attending a fellowship group, I deepened my relationship with God and made new friends. As a sophomore now, I feel compelled to give back to and improve upon the community that gave so much to me last year.”

What Students Say About Us

“I hope people get involved at Newman so they can experience this college faith community in a very real way. I hope they can feel God’s love through others and through experiences that help shape their college life.  I hope that the Newman Center helps to provide the knowledge and courage necessary to bring Jesus Christ and his Kingdom to the Truman community …and in order to be prepared to carry God’s love to others after graduation.”
