A Flourishing Center of Catholic Ministry at the University of Nebraska
The Newman Center, St. Thomas Aquinas Church at UNL is a dedicated youth ministry in Lincoln, Nebraska. Our Catholic youth group puts the celebration of the Sacraments at the forefront of our mission. Through formal dances each semester, serving on the student board, attending our weekly Community Nights, or participating in one of our championship intramural teams, students can meet peers with similar morals and values, all while having a great time. Our Community and Fellowship Youth Ministries (FOCUS, Fellowship of Catholic University Students) at the Newman Center are one of the largest youth ministries in the United States. We nurture a growing Catholic community among college students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Students have a variety of opportunities to be of service to the elderly, mentally challenged, unborn and impoverished within our own community, across the country and around the world.
Weekend-long retreats are offered each semester and individual spiritual direction and vocational discernment are available for all students.
