10 Years of Buckeye Awakening
The Newman Center is excited to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of our Buckeye Awakening retreat program. Save the Date for Sunday, Oct. 27! The main focus of the celebration that weekend will be the Noon Mass, followed by a reception. More details will be released in the fall.
We are especially trying to reconnect with as many Newman Center alumni as possible to extend a special invitation to join us for this exciting milestone. Please update your contact information through our Newman Center Alumni Connection. We look forward to hearing from you!
In the summer of 2009, seven Buckeye Catholics traveled to Texas A&M to experience Aggie Awakening. They returned, inspired to bring this impactful student-led weekend retreat experience to Columbus. In the fall of 2009, they led the first ever Buckeye Awakening. In the past 10 years the program has grown and flourished. We've had 20 Buckeye Awakening retreat weekends, impacting more that 1,300 students! This retreat program has become a staple of our campus ministry. It serves as a gateway to deeper involvement in Newman Center ministries, awakens the faith, and builds community relationships.
Buckeye Awakening has has inspired and impacted the lives and faith journeys of many. We would like to invite you, if you feel so called, to give back to the organization that makes this experience possible.
