HuskerCatholic Live! Benefit Dinner

November 6th, 2015

Husker Catholic Live! is an annual event that celebrates the thousands of students who are part of the Newman Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). The Friday evening dinner is a night to celebrate all the amazing work that God is doing through the Newman Center.

The Newman Center – St. Thomas Aquinas Church’s ministries continue to experience amazing results, both in the number of students involved and the impact they have in the lives of today’s Catholic college students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  Students, parents and other guests have all responded overwhelmingly in favor of the newly constructed Gothic-style church, with its striking artistic finishes and its remarkable acoustics.  The church was envisioned to inspire a deeper, spiritual reflection – a dialogue with Christ – and by all measures, it appears that is happening. 

The most inspiring and beautiful part of our expansion project is found with our students and the impact it’s already having in so many lives!  During our first Sunday of the semester, we had over 800 students in attendance at one Mass alone!  The church was overflowing with enthusiastic young people, eager to learn and grow in their Catholic Faith.  These numbers were unfathomable with the old, 300-seat church.  With four Masses offered every Sunday, our total attendance is already exceeding 2,000 students each weekend!

A Flourishing Center of Catholic Ministry at the University of Nebraska

The Newman Center, St. Thomas Aquinas Church at UNL is a dedicated Catholic campus 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.

Welcome to The Newman Center.
