The Newman Apostolate
The Newman Apostolate provides pastoral care for the students, faculty, administration and
staff of secular and private universities and colleges within the Diocese of Allentown.
"Students who attend colleges, universities, and other institutions
of higher learning are the leaders of future generations. Within the Diocese
of Allentown there are substantial and ever increasing numbers of Catholic students
in non-Catholic institutions of higher learning. It is the function of the Newman
Apostolate to help them develop a mature faith that they might be complete persons
in the image of Christ. The Newman Apostolate makes the pilgrim church, which is
missionary by its very nature, conveniently accessible to many who wish to learn from it."
