The Catholic Campus Ministry Program that serves the students of Pitt, CMU and Chatham is headquartered at The Pittsburgh Oratory - host to the Catholic Newman Center in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh. Oratorian priests, in collaboration with FOCUS missionaries, direct campus ministry and serve students on and off campus - Mass, Confession and Adoration, social events, retreats and service projects are just a few of the many things that take place every week at the Newman Center.  


Newman Centers are "Catholic ministry centers at non-Catholic universities throughout the world. These centers provide pastoral services and ministries to their Catholic communities, in particular to the Roman Catholic student population within universities throughout the world. Newman Centers were named in honor of Cardinal John Henry Newman and were inspired by Newman's writings. The first Newman Center was established in 1893 at the University of Pennsylvania" ( Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman was himself an Oratorian, making an Oratory the ideal home of a Catholic Newman Center! 

FOCUS "is a Catholic collegiate outreach whose mission is to share the hope and joy of the gospel to college and university students. Trained in Church teaching, prayer, sacred Scripture, evangelization and discipleship, FOCUS missionaries encounter students in friendship where they are, inviting them into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and accompanying them as they pursue lives of virtue and excellence. Through Bible studies, outreach events, mission trips and one-on-one discipleship, missionaries inspire and build up students in the faith, sending them out to spread the good news and to live out the Great Commission: Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations (Mt. 28:19)"(
