The Newman Association of Vancouver is a Catholic organization that seeks to promote and cultivate the religious, intellectual, and social dimensions of the lives of its members and associates. It is named after John Henry Cardinal Newman, an Anglican convert to Catholicism whose writings greatly inspired those working for the advancement of the liberal arts and the ideals of Catholic education. The Newman Association has been a member of the Canadian Federation of Newman Clubs (formed in 1942, now the Canadian Catholic Campus Ministry/Canadian Catholic Students’ Association) and has partnered with the international Catholic federation Pax Romana. Founded in 1940, it extends the mission of the Newman Club of the University of British Columbia from the UBC campus to the wider community and brings issues of pertinence into discussion and dialogue through its activities in the local Church.
