Newman Catholic Community

We are the Catholic affinity club on campus and we are excited to meet you! We are committed to worship, community, discovery, growth and service. 

Make sure you sign up on Presence!

We are looking into utilizing Oxy Presence more in the coming semesters, so please make sure you request to be a member!  All you have to do is go to and sign in with your Oxy Credentials (same as MyOxy).  Then, search for "Newman Catholic Community" and request to be a member in the upper right hand corner!  If you have any questions, please reach out at or on Instagram at @oxynewman.  

We are super excited for our in-person ministries this semester!

We are excited to announce our partnership with Fr. Dominic DeLay and the Catholic Community at Stanford. Fr. Dominic is an Oxy alum and we are thrilled to be cohosting events with him. Please keep an eye on our Instagram as well as our calendar to find out about our in person events this semester.
