Mark your calendars for our Advent Retreat starting the weekend of December 17. This retreat is open to all members of our Newman community as well as members of St. Thomas More. Franciscan Friar Dennis Mason will help us prepare for Christmas by exploring the depth of scripture and our faith. Friar Dennis will preach all Masses on the weekend of December 16/17, and will offer three conferences. The retreat flyer is available here with dates, times, and locations.
On October 26th, after the 12:30 Mass, a special event was held to celebrate the wisdom, kindness and overwhelming generosity of the Newman Community’s senior women. All invitees were encouraged to invite a friend, which resulted in fifty guests enjoying a delicious lunch prepared by Newman staff members. During the St. Clare Women’s Mass and Luncheon, old friendships were brought up to date and new friendships formed. Pam Tremblay spoke about how St. Clare, a contemporary and close friend of St. Francis of Assisi, continues to inspire her, along with all the women of the Newman Catholic Community, to “Be bold, live humbly, and have conviction in Christ.”
Some really good sports (UNC student catechists) volunteered Sunday to let the children "pie" them in the face to raise money for the Catechesis Tuition Assistance Fund.
UNC Chapel Hill wins their sixth NCAA Basketball Championship, and of course the Newman Community went all out to cheer them on!
Catechesis families and catechists gathered on Sunday, April 2 to experience the Stations of the Cross presented by our seventh and eighth grade students. Immediately following the stations, everyone worked together to make soup kits to be given to families in need. The soup kits will be distributed by Catholic Parish Outreach. A special thank you to the Catechesis Student Leadership Team for organizing and running this fun and meaningful service event.
