10 Years of Buckeye Awakening
The Newman Center is excited to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of our Buckeye Awakening retreat program!
You're invited to attend a special Mass and reception at the Newman Center to celebrate this milestone on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 12 p.m.!
And if you participated in Awakening, please wear your first BA t-shirt.
Get involved in the celebration!
We're looking for alumni to participate in the Mass as lectors, gift bearers, greeters, servers, musicians, and Eucharistic Ministers. We're also looking for some friendly, welcoming faces for the Hospitality Table at the reception.
We are especially trying to reconnect with as many Newman Center alumni as possible. 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 #86. 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.
