Student Campus Ministers

All Catholic students entering or continuing post-secondary education are invited to consider becoming part of the Student Campus Ministry team at the Newman Centre. You will live in community with other students, witness to your faith through Catholic chaplaincy outreach, participate in the liturgical life at Newman, and be provided with a platform to grow in holiness and develop solid Catholic leadership skills.  Your partially subsidized residence fees include a private room and shared or private bath, food and utilities.

Student Campus Ministers are an integral component of the Newman Centre's Campus Ministry Initiative. Under the supervision of the Executive Director, Student Campus Ministers are first and foremost part of the Newman Centre Residential Community. This Community is rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, striving to hear and live the Word of God in the Tradition of the Roman Catholic Church. Thus, Student Campus Ministers are bearers of and witnesses to Christ. Our deepest unity and meaning is found in the celebration of the Eucharist, a celebration that does not end with the Mass, but is instead the focal point that invigorates all our activities.

Each member of the Campus Ministry Team plays an important role in the overall campus outreach of the Newman Centre, bringing his or her own unique personality, talents and skills to the community-at-large. This experience also provides the opportunity for a significant deepening and sharing of personal faith (peer ministry), helping others to grow in the process.

In particular, Student Campus Ministers are called to:
Live in Community- The experience of living closely with others often requires setting aside personal preferences, being willing to enter into intentional relationships with everyone in the community regardless of personality preferences, and a sincere willingness to love others in a sacrificial way. A spirit of generosity and willingness to engage in effective conflict resolution are also necessary for healthy community living. 
Serve Others- The main focus of life at Newman is found in relationship with Christ and others, and in communication of the Gospel to the wider university campus. Student Campus Ministers are called to be so full of God’s love that it overflows from them in service of the parish and university community. This requires a spirit of availability, flexibility and willingness to help. 
Grow in Holiness- The main vocation of all Christians is to holiness, which requires a commitment to prayer and the Sacraments. Spiritual growth is also facilitated by growing in self-knowledge and a willingness to both receive formation and to share what is learned with others.
