Ashley McKay came to Neumann University to get her college degree, and along the journey she found something unexpected that has changed her life. A non-Catholic, who wasn’t looking to attend a Catholic university, is now in the process of becoming a Catholic through Neumann’s RCIA program.
“I started going to Sunday mass with my friend. I felt more comfortable in the Catholic Church, and I liked the way they do the liturgy. So, I got involved with campus ministry, learned a lot more about the religion, and pretty much fell in love with it,” she said.
In 2012, Ashley will become a Catholic during the Easter vigil mass.
Ashley, who is a freshman, psychology major from Springfield, Pennsylvania, recommends other students get involved with the various activities that Neumann has to offer.
“There are so many different opportunities for student involvement. When I got here I got involved right away. The student involvement and the faculty support are the biggest things for me here at Neumann.”
