Four young adult missionaries will join us to create an afternoon program of games, prayer, and reflection just for our middle schoolers. This program will be in the chapel from 2:30-4:30 p.m., June 15-19, and will follow regular Mass policies for social distancing and safety. Middle school students must register here. For more information, contact [email protected]. The High School Program will be 6:30-8:30 p.m. the same week. Click here to sign up for the high school program.
On July 1, we will welcome Fr. Dan Merz, SLD, as pastor and Fr. Paul Clark as associate pastor at Newman. Fr. Dan Merz is currently the pastor at St. George in Linn and Our Lady Help of Christians in Frankenstein. Fr. Paul Clark is currently associate pastor at Our Lady of Lourdes in Columbia and part-time chaplain at Fr. Tolton Catholic High School.
On July 1, Fr. Rich will begin his new assignment as associate pastor at Our Lady Queen of Peace in Madison, Wisconsin. Fr. Mike will begin his assignment as associate pastor at St. Thomas Aquinas at Purdue University. Fr. Aubuchon will be pastor at Visitation Parish in Vienna, Holy Guardian Angels Parish in Brinktown, and St. Aloysius Parish in Argyle.
Typically on May 31, there would be a second collection for the Diocesan Collection for Communication and Education. This collection: 1) supports Catholic Communication Campaign evangelizing through TV, radio, internet and other media and 2) funds academic scholarships and continuing education of priests of the diocese at the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. Please consider mailing in this special collection envelope you received with your offertory envelopes or dropping it in the offertory baskets in the Chapel. Thank you for your generosity!
Text: Come say goodbye to Fr. Rich and Fr. Mike on Sunday, June 14 from 1-3 p.m.! They will be seated under tents in the Newman parking lot and you will be able to drive up to bid them farewell from your car (enter on the 5th Street entrance). We will also have boxes to drop off notes for them during that time, or you can also drop off notes in the Gathering Space beginning this weekend.
