Keep up to date about Newman Center Activities as they come up
Fall Retreat 2010
Your mission at the St. Thomas More Newman Center is to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ expressed in the Roman Catholic intellectual and spiritual tradition into dialogue with the academic community at the University of Oregon through the evangelization and religious formation of the Catholic students, faculty, staff and administrators. You are the people affiliated with the University and local community members who support the mission of Catholic campus ministry.
Pre-Order and Sale of PIZZA, to take home and bake while you watch the Super Bowl! Pizzas will be available after Mass on Super Bowl Sunday. This is a great fundraiser for our student Mission Trip to New Orleans!
During the school year we will be discussing many difficult topics involving Catholic teaching, personal lifestyles, and social concerns. Our first topic is sex. We will be talking about what sex means, learning about why the church teaches what it does about sex, and how those teachings can be applied to our modern world. Come and find out more Tuesday, October 26th with dinner at 6 PM and discussion to follow.
The Newman Center wishes a very happy birthday and blessings on Margaret Casanova. We celebrated with Margaret last week during the move-in day BBQ. Margaret Casanova along with her late husband Len, have a scholarship named after them. It is for students of the University of Oregon who participate in the Newman Center. We raise money for it during our Webfoot Gala every year. We are very happy to celebrate Margaret's birthday with her.
This past Sunday we welcomed all students with a dessert social. Many desserts were on hand and many students enjoyed the sugar coma, and are now ready for classes this week. We wish all students well in their studies. If you couldn't make it on Sunday we have Wednesday Night Mass at 9 PM and a Spaghetti dinner on this Friday night followed by the Freshman Retreat.
Freshmen and new students enjoyed pancakes and sausage at our brunch Saturday. On the tour of campus we met Rocio, Peer minister last year. What great weather to tour campus looking for classes? God bless all new students at the beginning of this school year here at Oregon.
