Ryan Catholic Newman Center

Who We Are

Campus ministry center & chapel for Pitt, CMU, and Chatham

The Ryan Catholic Newman Center is located in the heart of Pittsburgh’s Oakland community, a stone’s throw from any of the campuses that we serve. The Newman Center, built in 1994, was designed to give the students a spiritual center near campus where they could pray, study, socialize and discuss their faith within a warm and friendly atmosphere.

A “spiritual” home-away from home, the Newman Center allows the Oratorians to provide a rich and dynamic diversity of programming for the students’ religious needs as well as a convenient Mass schedule for all in the area.

The regular hours for the student center during the terms are as follows:

Monday through Saturday – 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.
Sunday – 10:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.

What to Expect

What are services like?
Unique and recognizably Catholic.

What is the community like?
Close-knit and welcoming.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Services and activities provide a number of ways to participate. And becoming Catholic is pretty straightforward, if you're at all interested; everyone's welcome, though, regardless of what tradition or background.
