We are a family of resident and student parishioners whose mission is to share the abundant love of Christ as a university Catholic parish.
God has blessed us at St. Lawrence Catholic Church and Newman Center. We are made up of resident parishioners who live, work and raise their families in the area, and the University of Minnesota community. Our mission at St. Lawrence Newman Center is to “share the abundant love of Christ as a university Catholic parish.” Recent statistics indicate that only 10% of Catholic students still attend Mass by the time they leave college. By living our mission at St. Lawrence Newman Center we seek to give the students here at the University of Minnesota a chance to change that statistic.
Our resident parishioners and student parishioners all have a unique opportunity to share the abundant love of Christ with others. They offer an example of the blessing that comes from living the faith, raising a family in faith and growing spiritually through a personal relationship with Christ.
“Seek first the kingdom (of God) and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.”
