The Cowboy Catholic Student Center seeks to provide a home for students and a place of spiritual and intellectual formation.

“Newman has taught me that I am not a perfect person; however; I have also learned that this should not prevent me from pursuing a relationship with Christ and loving others the way we are called to love.” -Austin Dufrene


“Before I found my way home to Cowboy Catholics I struggled to find those good Christ-centered friendships, but at the Newman Center I was led to people who desire Christ as much as I do, and they desire good for my soul.” -Reygan Jagneaux
