Welcome to all new and returning students!
We welcome you to the Catholic community on campus at The Ohio State University! St. Thomas More Newman Center, the Roman Catholic campus ministry for The Ohio State University, SPO, and FOCUS invite you to become involved as a Buckeye Catholic.
Every Tuesday evening at 7:45 p.m. the Buckeye Catholic student group (BCAT) gathers for prayer, fellowship, and a student led talk about faith. Many students gather each week to take a break from the busyness of daily life on campus to just be with others who share the same values, daily joys, and challenges. Currently, during these pandemic times, this event will be virtually hosted by the BCAT Team from the Newman Center with small group time and fellowship over Zoom. Register for BCAT here to gain access to the weekly Zoom gathering! Also, check out the BCAT facebook group: Buckeye Catholic Community 2020-21
Newman Center Pals
Newman Center Pals is a ministry organized by our Peer Minister for Social Events, Bonnie Thibault. This ministry provides and opportunity for upperclassmen to serve as both a friend and mentor to underclassmen, especially new students and incoming freshmen. Fellowship and guidance is crucial, especially during these Pandemic times, for students to come together to build up the Body of Christ. Through Newman Center Pals, one upperclassman (3rd years & up) will be paired with one underclassman (1st & 2nd years) near the beginning of the Fall 2020 semester. Once the Newman Center Pals meet their pair, they are able to grow in a friendship centered around the love of God. Our Peer Minister for Social Events, Bonnie Thibault will provide guidance as well as various opportunities for Newman Center pals to come together. For more info or questions, please contact Bonnie at email@example.com.
