Tri-Co Newman Catholic Ministry helps students to know and love Jesus Christ in a very human way, discover Jesus, and love Him in others and His creation. We have Sunday mass every week at Bryn Mawr in the Music Room at Goodhart at 10:40am. (This is a change with COVID.)

We have weekly meetings for prayer as well as simply hanging out! Though a small community here, we are very close knit and love spending time together at mass, in prayer, hangouts, after mass for brunch, and especially at Christmas/Easter parties. For updates on events (as well as possible mass time changes,) check our twitter @BMCatholic or Facebook @BMCCatholic! Any other questions or need more information? Contact one of our student leaders, Hannah Appelhans (
