edicated in 1967, the Texas Southern University Newman Center has been part of the fabric of the TSU Campus and the Third Ward Community for over 45 years. The center is a warm and welcoming refuge to all who have entered it’s doors throughout its illustrious history The new couches and recliner add a brand new feel for the focal point of the room.

Under leadership of Director Deacon John Lane, and Chaplin Reverend Father Rodney Armstrong, S.S.J., an array of evolving programs and activities are in place to help students develop a mature faith through

study and practical application of God’s Word. There are currently many events planned for the upcoming fall semester that are both spiritually and socially fulfilling. The Newman Center welcomes not only Catholics but members from all

religious backgrounds. We encourage all to visit and participate in our events throughout the year.

The Archdiocese of Galveston Houston, through Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, made a substantial investment in upgrading an obsolete and temperamental A/C and heating system. In addition, the other noncosmetic upgrades included an investment in the plumbing system that at one time could be counted on to follow Murphy’s Law - What could go
