Here at Newman we have many services to offer our students.
We celebrate daily and weekend Mass.
We hold a praise and worship service every week during the academic year.
We offer counsiling to students in time of crisis whether it be a first time student away from home, the loss of a loved one, or any other issue a student may be troubled about.
We have many outreach programs that help those less fortunate than us.
We even take mission trips to help the rural poor of Jamaica.
Recently we have been faced with severe budget cuts and need to reach out to others for financial support..
This is ministry is vital to those living the campus life and not to have it available to the students would be heartbreaking.
This is a vital ministry on campus and needs to continue.
