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!
OSU vs. Michigan Blood Battle
Our annual Red Cross OSU vs. Michigan Blood Battle is Sunday, Nov. 18 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Come help us beat that school up north while saving lives! Show your Buckeye spirit by donating blood, food or volunteering. Sign-up sheets are available on Lane Avenue Lobby and you can sign-up to donate blood at Red Cross. Go Bucks!
Jail Ministry Service Fair
All are welcome to attend a Jail Ministry Service Fair on Saturday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to noon. Learn more about existing prison ministries around the Diocese, like Kindway, LifeBuilders, Kairos and LEAF, and how you can help by volunteering. For more information, please email email@example.com.
Study Break Dinner
Join us as we host another Study Break Dinner! Students are incredibly thankful in getting a home cooked meal during a very stressful time. On Sunday, Dec. 2, help us provide this much needed break to all OSU students going through finals week. We are looking for volunteers to help set-up/decorate, cook, serve and clean-up during dinner time. Sign-up today! For more information, contact Suzana Silva.
And If you are not able to volunteer… Help us add a sweet touch to this dinner by providing desserts to our meal. Please bring your dessert, in a disposable container if possible, to the Kitchen (3rd floor) any time before 6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2. We truly appreciate your generosity!
Special Holiday Cookie Collection
Newman Center volunteers will be serving a meal at the YWCA Family Center on Wednesday, Nov. 21, the day before Thanksgiving. In order to add a special touch to the meal, we're asking our community members to provide cookies in special Thanksgiving shapes (pumpkins, leaves, turkeys, etc.). We ask that cookies be free of anything that can cause allergies, like nuts. Sugar cookies are especially welcomed. Place your cookies in large ziploc bags and drop them off at the cookie table in the North Gathering Space by Sunday, Nov. 18. For more information, contact Suzana Silva. Thank you!
