Newman Club

Newman Club meets Mondays at 7pm in Melville Library Room N5560

The Newman Club at Stony Brook University is a student-run club made up of young adults who are committed to deepening their faith, serving others as Jesus taught, and forming a community with one another. The name comes from John Henry Cardinal Newman, a convert to Catholicism, whose writings were influential in the founding of Catholic clubs at non-Catholic colleges and universities.

Our weekly Newman Club meetings cover a variety of topics: discussions to spark our spirituality, current events from a Catholic perspective, guest speakers, service opportunities, and the chance to socialize and have fun with other like-minded students.

“Stay with me, and then I shall begin to shine as You shine: so to shine as to be a light to others. The light, O Jesus, will be all from You. None of it will be mine. It will be You who shines through me upon others.”

From Cardinal Newman’s ‘Meditations & Devotions’
