Greetings, fellow Newmanites! It was wonderful to see so many of you at Mass yesterday, as well as at SNS (Saturday Night Supper); we hope you enjoyed taking part in the events at Newman and we look forward to seeing you again this week!
The following are the announcements from the Newman Centre and the Newman Catholic Students' Society for the upcoming week. Please be sure to save the dates on your calendar!
Once a week, we will get together to read and discuss a different text. We'll read the text together so no need to read it in advance - just show up! We'll aim to have potluck snacks, so bring something to share if you can!
We still start off by looking more closely at John Henry Newman and the plan is to go on in future weeks to fiction, philosophy, spirituality, papal documents, contemporary issues, and other themes according to what you are interested in!
Soup and Bagel
Monday to Thursday (12:30 PM - 2:00 PM)
Soup and Bagel resumes today! Come and enjoy fresh homemade soup and warm bagels from Monday to Thursday, 12:30 to 2pm, in the Bagelounge (on the ground floor of the Newman Centre): the perfect way to replenish your energy for your busy afternoon!
There will be no Bible Study this week due to Diocesan events. Bible Study will resume next week!
Membership in the Society is open to everyone and comes with the following benefits:
a $2 discount on a (one) Saturday Night Supper
right to attend Council meetings
right to vote in Society elections (if you are a SSMU or PGSS member)
Memberships cost $2 and can be purchased from our VP Finance, Wilhelm Magner. We will also be selling memberships at future Saturday Night Suppers (SNS).
The Newman Choir welcomes new students to join us. We usually practice for 1 hour before Mass on Sunday. For more information please contact choir director Ariel Pan at email@example.com.
Lectors & Acolytes
If you are interested in reading or altar serving at Mass at the Newman Centre, please contact OiYin at firstname.lastname@example.org (lectors) or Matthew at email@example.com (servers). We are particularly short on altar servers, so any volunteers regardless of experience would be greatly appreciated!
The Newman Centre has Mass every Sunday at 5:00pm. Weekday Masses are held on Tuesday to Friday at 4:30pm, with Eucharistic Adoration from 4:00-4:30pm. Prior to all weekday Masses, a priest will be available for spiritual direction at 3:00pm, with occasional exceptions on Thursdays, where priest availability will begin at 3:30. Confessions are heard before all Masses.
The Newman Centre is open weekdays from 10:00am-5:00pm (extended hours on some days) and on weekends during scheduled events such as Mass.
