SPEARFISH, S.D. -

Hundreds gathered on Saturday at the site of the new Newman center, a block away from Black Hills State University.

The new center is now 10 years in the making, after struggling with a small building at the Saint Joseph’s parish. The 16-thousand square foot building will cost nearly four-million dollars to construct. Monsignor Michael Woster, the chaplain for the BHSU Newman Center, says the new facility will help young adults keep a strong faith while in college.

 “To have a beautiful facility, a 16,000 square feet, we are just going to be able to do just wonderful, wonderful things and expand our programs and continue to bring the faith to our young people,” said Monsignor Woster.

The new Newman Center will take 12 to 15 months to build. Monsignor Woster hopes to have the center open by the start of the 2018 fall semester.

To mark the start of construction on the new facility, a celebration was held Saturday at the Black Hills State Young Center. It included food, beverages, and live music by The Sound Exchange.
