Help us thrive and grow.

Our mission is to support, challenge, and inspire Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff to grow in faith, and live out their calling to be true disciples of Christ on campus and in their daily lives. Founded on Christ’s teachings and the Eucharist we prepare Catholic leaders for service to the Church and world through the pillars of faith, community, and service.

Help us prepare faithful leaders.

We seek to provide a safe, warm, and inviting facility. Students consider the Newman House a ‘home away from home’. Donations help support and maintain the Catholic Ministry’s property and programs. This includes the upkeep of the Newman House and associated parcels. Considerations include interior and exterior maintenance, building improvements, furniture, fixtures, and equipment to serve clergy, employees, students, and visitors. This physical space hosts daily mass, adoration of the blessed sacrament, small groups, community dinners, tailgating, and games like volleyball and cornhole.

Students are encouraged to deepen their faith through a variety of programs in our ministry. Small Group Bible Studies, our Annual Fall Retreat, and our Alternative Spring Break trips are great ways for students to grow in their faith and get connected to other Catholic Hokies.
