Spiritual Life MINISTRY

Newman Center Campus Ministry

A ministry of St. Mark parish; the Newman Center serves the students, faculty and staff of Eastern Kentucky University. The dedicated facility is conveniently located on the edge of campus right next to Walters Hall accessible from both University Drive and Kit Carson Drive. Please continue reading below to find out how we will carry out our ministry this semester while contending with COVID-19.

We now have a "GroupMe" Group established.  The easiest way to get connect is to send an email to Alanna at asininger@cdlex.org with your cell phone number and any other contact information you would like to share with us.  

As with most things regarding campus life and dealing with COVID-19, the Newman Center is approaching things in a different manner to do our part in keeping our students, faculty and staff of EKU safe and healthy.  One of the biggest changes will be where our Sunday, 5:00 p.m. Mass will be held.  Due to the requirements of social distancing, we are going to begin the 2020 Fall Semester having the Mass for our college students at St. Mark so that we can accommodate more students.

Do you know of a college student that is interested in learning about the Catholic faith?  Are you not sure what we as Catholics believe?  Want to know more about our Catholic faith?  For the first time in ten years, we are bringing an RCIA program back to our EKU Newman Center for our EKU students.  The program will be led by Dr. Todd Hartch, a history professor here at EKU.  The day and time has not been determined because he wants to base it on your availability.  You can send an email to Alanna at asininger@cdlex.org or to Dr. Harcht at todd.hartch@eku.edu.
