The Newman Center is a gathering place for the Catholic community at the University of Maine in Orono. The Newman Center, also known as Our Lady of Wisdom Church, is part of the Parish of the Resurrection of the Lord, with three additional churches in Old Town, Bradley, and the Penobscot Nation.

As a parish, we welcome all members of the University community: students, faculty, staff, and administrators, as well as their families. Visitors and residents of our parish communities are always welcome!

As a campus ministry center, we have a special ministry to University students. We welcome Catholics and those who are interested in knowing more about the Catholic faith.

Students gather for liturgy, retreats, outreach to those in need, social events, religious study, and sacrament preparation; and the chapel is always available for prayer!

We encourage students to study at the center, and free WiFi is available for that purpose. We also have space for cooking, a collection of board games, various outdoor games for temperate weather fun, and a vast collection of books to peruse if you need a break from textbooks.
