The primary mission of the Newman Club, which is served by the community of St. Thomas More Catholic Church, is to be the Catholic Campus Ministry for the University of South Carolina. The Newman Club strives to serve the spiritual and religious needs of the students at the University of South Carolina.
Why "Newman Club" and not just "Catholic Student Association"?
The Newman Club derives it's name from Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman, a 19th century priest and defender of the Catholic faith. For more information on Cardinal Newman, please visit: John Henry Newman.
What does the Newman Club actually do?
The Newman Club is the gathering of Catholic university students, primarily undergraduate, for weekly meetings and socials that assist in continued development of their spiritual life. A common theme one will hear is, "We are not your parents' church"--meaning university is a time for students to engage and make the faith your own!
Multiple small groups meet throughout the week to make the faith more personal, but yet still communal. We also offer weekly adoration followed by dinner and daily Mass. Feel free to join us when you can!
“It is wonderful to be young. It is wonderful to be young and a student of a university. It is wonderful to be young and a student of the University of South Carolina.”
