Christian Origins of Halloween

Our very own Augustine Thompson, OP wrote a short article on the origins of Halloween. This is to counter all those Christians who would turn it into a pagan festival.

If you are interested in the Dominican Rite especially on the feast of All Soul's you can look at this website provided by Augustine Thompson, OP

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.
