Catholicism 101: Living in the past and the future in the NOW!

 On Sunday, September 19, 2021, we had our first Catholicism 101 with Father Tony.  The focus was about the Mass, the timelessness of God, and the way we meet heaven each and every time we attend the Mass.  It was a great conversation.  Thank you to Father Tony!

Mark your calendars for October 10th.  Father Tony's next topic will be the Saints:  "Friends of God and Prophets."

Family Weekend

 The Catholic 'Stangs, along with LuMIN, hosted a dessert bar at the Campus Religious Center.  While we did not have a huge turnout, we had a good opportunity to connect with several families of the students we serve.  We also got to meet a few new students and families.  Our thanks to the parishioners who provided the goodies!  They were enjoyed by all who had them.

2021 Fall Grill Out

 On Tuesday, August 31, the Campus Religious Center hosted their annual Fall grill out.  More than 60 people came together over the course of the evening for food, fellowship and fun.

Thank you to the Catholic 'Stangs leadership team for their setup and cleanup.  Nate, Carter, Moses and Levi, we couldn't have done it without you!

We would also like to thank the Lutheran Campus Ministry Board (Caroline, Pastor Chuck, Dealyn and Shanda) and Holy Redeemer Parishioners (Rich and Pam, Dean and Doreen, with Brylee and Adison, and Father Tony).  Support from our community is an integral component to meeting the spiritual needs of our student body.

Ecumenical Prayer Service

 On Tuesday, August 24, 2021, Catholic Campus Ministries and Lutheran Campus Ministries opened the 2021-2022 Academic Year with an Ecumenical Prayer Service.  After many years of not having a joint service, it was a beautiful opportunity to come together in community.

Our sincere thanks to all who made this ecumenical celebration possible.  We would especially like to thank Father Anthony J. Stubeda, Pastor Chuck Swanson, and Pastor Lyle Snyder for their leadership in the service, Chris and Amanda Sieling for their service of music, Moses Dolan for lectoring, Dealyn Rose for hosting, and the students who form our Campus Religious Center Community on the campus of Southwest Minnesota State University.

Newman Connect App


The Newman Connect App is the best way to get connected to Catholic Club based activities happening on the Campus of Southwest Minnesota State University.  Follow up today to get involved!

Sacraments, and More, at the Campus Religious Center

 Mass, Reconciliation, and Adoration are all available at the Campus Religious Center on a weekly basis.

Join us for Daily Mass on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12n.  We begin each Mass with The Angelus.  Tuesdays, we conclude with the Our Lady of Perpetual Help devotion.  Mass and prayer is about a half an hour, which will allow plenty of time for you to grab lunch before you head back to class!

On Sundays, the rosary begins at 5:40p, as we prepare ourselves to enter into the Mass.  After Mass, join with your fellow students for a FREE supper and fellowship.  Twice a month, we also offer activities in the evenings.  Stay tuned for more details.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available twice a week at the Campus Religious Center.  First, on Sundays beginning at 5p until Mass, the Sacrament is offered in Father's office.  Again, on Tuesdays, from 6p-6:45p, the Sacrament is available in Father's office.  There are handouts to help you if it has been awhile since you have received this precious sacrament.  Both face to face as well as behind the screen options are available.

On Tuesday evenings, beginning September 7, 2022, Adoration is available from 6p-6:45p in the Chapel at the Campus Religious Center.  This is a quiet opportunity to spend time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

 Join us at the Campus Religious Center as we celebrate Family Weekend at SMSU!
