Catholic campus ministry is the presence and ministry or service of the Roman Catholic Church on the campus of a school, college, or university. It may include the setting up of clubs, groups, and organizations, as well as the animating of liturgies, retreats, recollections, and the handling of Religion classes, workshops, and seminars. Some examples of Catholic campus ministries include Newman Club, Newman Apostolate, and Catholic Student Association.

Cardinal Newman[edit]

Many Catholic campus ministry programs exist today because of the efforts of Cardinal John Henry Newman, the man who founded the first Newman Center on a college campus.
