“God’s love can only unleash its power when it is allowed to change us from within. We have to let it break through the hard crust of our indifference, our spiritual weariness, our blind conformity to the spirit of this age. Only then can we let it ignite our imagination and shape our deepest desires.” - Pope Benedict XVI

Thank you for checking out the NEWMAN CATHOLIC CENTER serving the MONTCLAIR STATE UNIVERSITY community for over 50 years. 

The center is located in two  100 + year old houses adjacent to the University’s Campus - which houses our Daily Mass Chapel, Library, Recreation Room, and offices for the Chaplain, FOCUS missionaries and staff operations. 

We continue to strive to be attentive to the Holy Spirit’s direction in order to bring the life and love of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church that he founded to the community we serve.
