UNT/TWU Catholic Campus Ministry to become diocese’s first university parish, Bl. John Paul II

In a small building right off the campus of the University of North Texas in Denton, a group of about 50 students gather in the downstairs common area for a daily Mass as the end of the semester nears. The building is the Catholic Campus Center, affectionately known as the “C” to the students, and as of July 1, will be home to the newly established Blessed John Paul II Parish to serve the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of UNT and Texas Woman’s University, and their families.
