Coming to UMass Dartmouth or Know Someone Who Is?
Our Campus Ministry team, including our student peer ministers,, stand ready to welcome incoming freshman. We offer special high school to college transition programs that we encourage you to take advantage of. 

On August 9-10, 2016, UMass Catholic Campus Minstry will offer an overnight program at Sacred Hearts Retreat Center in Wareham, Ma. This gathering provides an opportunity for incoming first year students to meet the campus ministry team, and to meet other students who will be attending UMass Dartmouth in the fall. You'll have an opportunity to explore the transitions that define our past, present, and future. Take time away to reflect with others and on your own, listen to the experiences of a young adult team as you prepare to transition from high school and home life to living on your own.

Incoming freshman who commit to participaton in Freshman 5 will be invited to arrive on campus early before the official move-in date. This will give them an opportunity to settle in and to meet other Catholic students. They will participate in the NOVUS program for our incoming Catholic freshman.

Freshman 5 is a five-week faith sharing program for UMass Dartmouth freshman. The groups meet weekly with members of our peer ministry team for five weeks. These groups may continue past the first five weeks should the students decide to continue meeting.

The Perfect Summer Self-Study Program

The summer may be a perfect time to learn more about our faith. The Journey to Truth and Life is an online theological reflection, self-study program that utilizes videos and other resources to help participants grow in a deeper knowledge of Catholic theology and, most importantly, their relationship with Jesus Christ. [ Details and Registration ]


Adoration and Applebees

You are invited to a night of worship and fellowship with God and with friends. Join us for Eucharistic Adoration, where we will encounter our savior in the appearance of bread. We will participate in the rich and beautiful traditions of the church through various forms of prayer, whether that be the rosary or Liturgy of the Hours or contemplation and meditation. 

Following Benediction, we will move to Applebee’s for an opportunity to enjoy good food and good company.  

Adoration takes place at 5:00 pm on the first Monday of the month at 5:00 pm at Newman House [ More ]
