Catholic Campus Ministry, the Newman Community at Ashland University

We are 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.

Weekly Events

Mass: Sundays at 9:30 PM in Upper Chapel 

Newman Nights: Mondays at 6:30 PM in Lower Chapel 

About Newman Nights: Every Monday, we gather together around a delicious communal meal and engage in fellowship. After our meal, we often invite guests to speak about issues concerning faith, spirituality, and social justice.
