Join us this Friday for the continuation of our two-part Your Questions on Tap series on Faith and Mental Health! Where is God in the midst of our struggles with mental health?

Diocesan World Youth Day

Saturday, April 13th (12:00 PM - 3:00 PM)

Every year, Archbishop Christian Lépine invites all young people to join him in celebrating the vitality of young people and to proclaim the joy of their faith in Jesus Christ during the diocesan celebration of the World Youth Day. This year, the theme for WYD is Mary's Amen to Mary. There are three parts to the day: youth festival, pilgrimage and mass. For more information, you can check out the Facebook event.

SUNDAY Night Supper

Sunday, April 14th (6:00 PM)

The Newman Catholic Students' Society has a longstanding tradition of hosting regular suppers on Saturday nights, prepared by members of the Newman community. For $5, you can enjoy a full meal, including dessert!

To celebrate the end of another academic year and the start of Holy Week, we’re having our final SNS on Palm Sunday after the 5pm mass. The meal will be prepared by Richard Bernier, and the dessert will be provided by the NCSS Execs.
