The Newman Catholic Student Center serves the Catholic community at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, both university students and community members.
We dedicate ourselves to proclaim and share the Word of God, to celebrate the sacraments, to foster community, to offer service to those in need, to attend to the faith dimensions of personal growth, and to promote peace and justice.
Some of our events and services include Bible studies, free “Food for Thought” dinners for students, service opportunities, and various social activities.
Our Mass times are 11 a.m. on Sunday year-round, with an additional 8 p.m. mass during the SIUC academic year. Our daily Masses are Tuesday 5:15pm when SIU is in session and Thursday at 5:15 p.m. year-round.
