Our Mission

The Lehigh Catholic Campus Ministry & Newman Center's mission is to know and love Jesus Christ, to discover His Will in our lives, and to serve Him and His Church on our campus and in the world. We serve the spiritual, social, and leadership formation needs of Catholic students attending Lehigh University. We provide a community that is a "home away from home" offering the opportunity for people to receive the Sacraments and have access to a safe and welcoming place of prayer and a spiritual center for students, faculty, and staff.


The Newman Center is located in Cullen Hall on the Campus of Holy Ghost Church.
