We are a community of believers who seek holiness together in the community of the Catholic Church. Open to all students, faculty, staff and friends of the University of Rhode Island, we strive to empower disciples to become apostles of the Good News through worship, catechesis, charitable works, and Christ-centered community. All are welcome to join us!
RCO is a grouping of programs, activities and leadership teams that was once known as the Newman Club. Our weekly RCO night, "Rhody Catholic Event," is held every Wednesday at 6pm.
URI is served by a team of FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students) missionaries who work closely with the chaplain to bring the gospel to campus. Learn more about them in our Staff section.
We strive to serve Christ in the poor and the vulnerable. Mission trips provide a life-changing opportunity to do just that. Click the Mission Trips tab above for more information.
Students are appointed to serve in leadership positions for the academic year. Students are welcome to inquire about open positions and application procedures for the Student Executive Board (SEB).
