What are we all about?

UB Catholic serves the University at Buffalo by providing a place to experience community, explore spirituality, and discover ways to serve others through a faith that does justice.

UB Catholic is a combination of the Catholic Campus Ministry on UB’s North Campus at the Newman Center and on UB’s South Campus at St. Joseph University Parish.

We offer dynamic and reverent worship, compassionate pastoral care, and opportunities for transformative volunteer service, spiritual retreats, theological discussions, social justice advocacy, free meals, and more!

UB Catholic is here for the students and constantly seeks out better ways to serve you.  If you have a question or an idea of something you would like to see happen in campus ministry, please let us know.

All are welcome at UB Catholic. We hope that you will join us!
