Catholic Clubs and Student Organizations
The Newman Catholic Club is the association for Catholic Students at UBC, Corpus Christi College and St. Mark’s College. Its goal is to form community and give students the opportunity to connect with Catholic peers on campus and explore their faith in a university environment. There are chapters of the Newman Club on university campuses across North America. To learn more about Cardinal Newman, you may wish to read the words of Pope John Paul II. The Newman Club has been meeting on the site of St. Mark’s College since 1958, but has been in existence since 1926. Contact them here.
