Welcome Parents,

We would like to welcome all parents to a new page on our website designed to provide you with information on the events and activities your children are involved in at Virginia Tech. This page is intended to keep parents connected with the our ministry events to provide a better picture of the various community activities that make up our ministry.

With the addition of this page we hope to better connect you with the community and ministry that your children are members of during their college years. We will provide updated information, photos, and news articles related to the many campus ministry activities the Newman Community is providing in order to support, challenge and inspire students, faculty and staff to grow in faith and live out their call to be true disciples of Christ on campus and in their daily lives.

This page has been designed as a resource for you the parents. Please contact Patti Connors at, or (540) 951-0032 to share ideas or suggestions on how to improve the content included.  We would love to have your help with this new project.

Our parents and families are essential partners in fulfilling our mission.  Parent’s Circle members ensure that the Catholic community at Virginia Tech remains a vibrant active part of student’s lives at Virginia Tech.  You make it possible for Newman to have Freshman Welcome Week, Sunday Suppers, Retreats, Sunday and Daily Mass and Sacraments on campus, Small Group Bible studies and much more.

Newman Parent’s Circle DONATE NOW

The Virginia Tech Newman Community has been a brilliant Virginia Tech within Virginia Tech for Ali. She has actively lived her faith; been challenged with leadership opportunities; brought to life Ut Prosim; met her closest, lifelong friends; and developed into the strong, confident, faith-filled Hokie she is today.

Giving a monthly gift to the Parent’s Circle allows us to feel more connected to the Newman Community.  When we hear how many students attend retreats, see photos of Mass being celebrated on a mountaintop, or hear about a speaker at Sunday Supper, it makes our hearts leap. What could be better than to give this small monthly gift and say: Wow, we’re part of that!
