Our Mission

The Catholic Campus Ministry at Kutztown University is committed to the needs of the students, faculty and staff. Using universal principles of belief in God and growing in our personal and communitarian spirituality, we utilize our gifts of practical tools for leading a joyous, abundant and peaceful life on this earth. Wherever you may be on your spiritual path, Saint Christopher is a place where you will find a supportive environment with opportunities for personal growth. We aspire to strengthen the confidence of each person at every point in their life, encouraging a personal and thorough knowledge of and active service in our church and community.

The Catholic Campus Ministry at Kutztown University works to passionately cultivate a heart for the campus, animated by the love of Christ and embodied by the community of believers in Saint Christopher Newman Center.

The vision and calling of that community is to engage the campus in discovering the indescribable joy of life in Christ as it is found in the Catholic Church. 

Catholic Campus Ministry at Saint Christopher is a ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Allentown. Under the guidance of the Catholic Chaplain, Father Rich Brensinger, and with the support of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, Saint Christopher strives to offer students with constant spiritual support.

Saint Christopher provides a variety of programs for Catholic students including daily and Sunday Mass, faith development programs and opportunities for spiritual enrichment.

All students are welcome to participate in the activities, programs and services. Our goal is to incorporate religious beliefs and values into everyday campus life.
