There are many ways to get involved at the Newman Center, including Service & Justice ministries and Liturgy & Music ministries. While looking through our site, if you find a ministry that calls to you, please don't hesitate to contact the staff liaison or group leader and ask how you can become involved in that ministry!
We are each given many gifts to share to benefit the community. Our liturgy is richer when each person contributes! We welcome you to any of our Liturgical Ministries for any of our Masses. Training sessions are starting in September. For more information, please contact Karen Broering.
Ministry to the Sick
We are looking for Ministers of Communion to join Ministry to the Sick at the OSU Wexner Medical Center. Volunteers bring communion and prayers to patients and commitment is about two hours a month. If you'd like to be part of this ministry but it's not trained as a Minister, just sign-up for one of the training sessions being offered this month. For more information contact Joan McMahon.
Work for Justice
Newman Center’s Justice Ministry, through its membership in the B.R.E.A.D. Organization (Building Responsibility, Equality and Dignity), begins its annual cycle each fall with a listening process. Each year, we hold “house meetings” in homes and at the Newman Center with small groups of people. The purposes of the meetings are to: 1) learn what people are personally concerned about, 2) build community and 3) increase participation in our justice ministry network at the Newman Center. We have 11 house meetings scheduled from mid-September through mid-October. The Justice Ministry team members invite everyone to attend a meeting to learn more about how we are able to be about God's work of justice by forming a powerful committed and caring community. The team will be calling everyone who is registered at the Newman Center with this invitation or click here to sign-up for a house meeting. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
