St. Lawrence Catholic Church
and Newman Center
We're a Catholic university parish, served by the Paulist Fathers, called to share the abundant love of Christ through worship, outreach, service, and dialogue.
Besides being a parish in Dinkytown, we are a spiritual home for Catholics at the University of Minnesota and the surrounding colleges providing ministry to the campus.
If you recently graduated, congratulations! May your future journeys be filled with God's blessings. Please keep in touch and come back to visit. If you haven't done so, please fill out our graduation info form at St. Lawrence or on-line.
