At this point we are only open for IN-PERSON CEP & EDGE but we are happy to provide a Zoom or at-home option if there is a group who'd like to participate.  We plan to follow CPS guidelines for masking and expect that policies for the new school year will be announced soon.

You are invited to purchase tickets to sit with Newman at MU's Homecoming game on Saturday, October 9! The purchase deadline is Sunday, September 12 at midnight, but please don't delay if you're interested! The more tickets we sell early in the process, the better seats we'll get! Tickets will be available for pick up at Newman the week prior to the game. Cost is $45 each for the lower bowl (regularly $65 - save $20!)

Language Exchange Program: Seaking Friendly English Speakers

We have visiting Korean parishioners who are often in the parish for only a year or two who would like to meet one on one with an English speaker.  We’re asking volunteers to meet once a week for at least six weeks beginning in late September or early October. You can meet in-person or on Zoom.  No Korean or teaching experience required!   Please fill out the interest form to help us pair you with an English learner.
