Stained Glass in St. John's

Who We Are…

St. John University Parish is a Roman Catholic parish dedicated to Christ and His Church through campus ministry at West Virginia University. We are blessed to have our Newman Hall as a home for our students to study, hang out, and grow in their faith.

St. John’s is under St. John Henry Newman’s patronage. St. John Henry Newman, the 19th-century’s most important English-speaking Catholic theologian, spent the first half of his life as an Anglican and the second half as a Catholic. As he would later write, “To be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant.” He was a priest, popular preacher, writer, and eminent theologian. When Newman was named a cardinal in 1879, he took as his motto “Cor ad cor loquitur”—“Heart speaks to heart.” Three years after Newman died, a Newman Club for Catholic students began at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. In time, his name was linked to ministry centers at many public and private colleges and universities in the United States. His feast day is celebrated on October 9.  St. John’s relies on his intercession for our parishioners and students. His motto, “Cor ad cor loquitur”, can be found on the stained glass window in the choir loft of the church.
