Parents, do you have a graduating High School Senior who will be heading off to college?

FACT: 80% of students stop practicing their faith at some point during college.*

It’s hard to imagine but this issue is very real and it is impacting our students and the Church. During the college years – the Church is being put on hold. Without spiritual guidance and mentoring, these students are drifting away from the Church.

FACT: Together we can change this.**

The Newman Connection is dedicated to keeping students connected to the Catholic Church through Campus Ministry. To accomplish this goal, they have developed a High School Outreach Program. College is a busy time; and adjusting to collegiate life can be overwhelming. The Newman Connection seeks to help make the transition a positive experience by connecting students to the Catholic campus ministry of their chosen college.

Overloaded with adjustment to campus life, new environment, freshman jitters, class-load, and many, many other distractions, the last thing on most freshman minds is to look for a Catholic ministry on campus. This is why it is crucial that we GET THEM CONNECTED before they leave home — so they continue growing in their faith during these important years. Catholic students need all the helps we can offer them to remain strong in their faith and relationship with Christ.
