What are Newman Centers?
Centers are faith-based community centers that foster intellectual, moral and
spiritual growth - promoting the ideal of educating the individual as a whole. They are often located on or near secular
universities. The Diocese of Brownsville
has established Newman Centers at The University of Texas – Pan American and
The University of Texas at Brownsville/Texas Southmost College. In more recent years, Newman Clubs have
formed at Texas State Technical College and at South Texas College. The diocese employs full-time staff to
coordinate campus ministry activities and has designated priests assigned as chaplains
for liturgical and sacramental services at the Newman Centers. The UTPA Newman Center is also used as a
retreat house by several of the lay movements across the Valley.
The Newman Catholic Student Center is available for rental. Please call us at 956.383.0133 for more information.
