Who We Are

The Marshall Catholic Newman Center has operated as the base for the greater Catholic Community at Marshall University for 40 years. Established by the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston in April of 1981, it has been our mission to bring students together in an intentionally Catholic environment so that they may come know, love, and serve Jesus Christ and His Church. We welcome all Marshall University students, staff, and faculty. If you are a prospective student or parent we would love to have you schedule a tour to meet our staff and student leaders.

Virtual Tour

Chapel – This small quiet space is perfect for some one-on-one time with God. When classes and relationships get to be too much this is a great place to clear your mind and connect with our Lord, who is present in the tabernacle.

Carole’s Kitchen – Named after our very dear friend who was a mother to many students over the years, this kitchen is where our famous “Dinner for a Dollar” meals are prepared every Thursday at 6:00 PM. Students are welcome to utilize this space for their own cooking projects and dietary needs. Snacks and refreshments are always available!

Newman Lounge – Whether it’s a board game night, racing for the finish line in Mario Kart, bible study, or making a study nest out of one of our massive bean bags, our Newman Lounge is a place for students to come and get cozy. Kick your shoes off and make yourself at home!

Sanctuary – This is where our Sunday Mass is celebrated every Sunday during the fall and spring semesters at 4:00 PM. Students with musical gifts are welcome to join our music ministry! Just ask our Campus Minister for more information.

Dining Hall – This is where we share a meal together during Dinner for a Dollar! Come and enjoy good food and fellowship!
