Newman Catholic Ministries

The Newman Community of Ashland University is a welcoming faith group rooted in the Catholic tradition. Through the sacraments, service and a social community of believers, we strive to foster the spiritual growth of all students, faculty and staff, as well as those in and around the Ashland University community. It is our vision that our vibrancy is enhanced and strengthened by each individual's unique gifts and involvement.
