The Newman Center is raising money to construct a church that is estimated to cost $2.5 million.
We have currently raised over $1.4 million! We are half way there!
The plan is for a 340 seat, 5,000 square foot church. This is where the heart of our worship as Catholics will take place: the Mass.
At the moment, our current facility only allows us to comfortably seat 85 people. This is too small a space, we need to have a larger sacred space to accommodate the growing student population of UNLV.
Also present will be a bell tower, plaza, and some of the decorative accessories for the church (a new altar, lectern, statues, etc.). The plaza will sit in the Brussels Street side of our center and will allow us to have outdoor gatherings when the weather permits. It can also serve as another spot on our grounds for students to study, eat, or hang out.
Our plan for this church has been wholeheartedly approved by Bishop George Leo Thomas of the Catholic Diocese of Las Vegas. With the help of our community and the generosity of our benefactors, our students (both Catholic and non-Catholic alike) will have a sacred place to pray, meditate, and be alone with God. The church and bell tower will serve as symbols that the Church is present on campus and is here to serve students of UNLV.
