About Catholic Life at Adelphi

Rooted in the Catholic tradition and inspired by the Holy Spirit, Catholic Campus Ministry serves the students, faculty, and staff at Adelphi University through prayer and worship; mentoring and spiritual direction; community building and authentic friendships; education and apostolic service; development of faith-filled leaders; and empowerment of students in terms of personal, moral, and spiritual growth. Newman Club is an organization for all students that work in conjunction with the Campus Ministry team for Diocese of Rockville Centre.
