Dear Friends,

Welcome to the St. John Paul II Catholic Newman Center.
We hope that this Newman Center will be a Home for many hearts to know the depth of God’s love and a School to form authentic witnesses to love, truth and life. 

We hope to introduce you to the best friend you will ever have, Jesus!  And if you already know Jesus, we hope you grow into a closer relationship with Him.  We hope you will come to learn how deeply He loves you and wants to help you live a life that is truly fulfilling.  We hope you will come to seek out, learn and follow the very special plan God has for YOUR LIFE! We hope to introduce you to His Family: the Trinity, His Mother - Mary, His stepfather - St. Joseph, His Bride - the Church, His special brothers and sisters - the saints, His other creatures - the good angels.  And we pray that as you grow that you will find great joy in sharing your gifts and talents to bring to many who do not yet know—-God’s love for them.
