Newman Hall is the Roman Catholic community at the University of California, Berkeley. We are a Eucharistic community, striving to make the promise and challenge of the Gospel and the Catholic tradition a tangible reality in our own lives and the lives of the university community, the residents of our parish, and those drawn to us by the movement of God’s grace. For 101 years we have been served and guided by the Paulist Fathers and their mission of evangelization, reconciliation, and ecumenism & interfaith relations.
