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!
Welcome Week 2019
Be part of the welcome team! We have exciting activities planned for Welcome Week and all members of the Newman Center are invited to volunteer and welcome students during this week of celebrations. We are especially looking for volunteers to help with our Community Potluck Dinner.
Thank you for helping us welcome students to our amazing Newman Center community!
Food Collection for Buckeye Food Alliance
The Buckeye Food Alliance was established in 2014 by five roommates who became aware of food insecurity among OSU students, who sometimes go without food in order to pay the costs of their education and housing. It is estimated that up to 15% of students at Ohio State lack consistent access to food. The Newman Center is supporting Buckeye Food Alliance’s mission by hosting a food collection this month. Please consider donating to this collection. Most needed items are:
Deadline is Sunday, Sept. 8. If you have any questions about the collection, please contact Suzana Silva.
For information about the Buckeye Food Alliance, please visit www.buckeyefoodalliance.org or call (614) 688-2508.
For over 30 years, volunteers from the Newman Center have been cooking and serving a meal once a month at the Faith Mission Shelter. We are looking for one or two volunteers who would be willing to lead this ministry once its current leader steps down at the end of the summer. Commitment is 6-8 hours per month, and some responsibilities include being present on the second Monday of month to lead volunteers in cooking and serving the meal, keep track of sign-ups and send reminders to volunteers. Training will be provided. The Newman Center community has been very supportive of this ministry and we’d like to continue to provide this service to the most needy in our community but to do so, we need your help. Please prayerfully consider leading this great feeding ministry. If you’re interested or would like more information, please contact Suzana Silva.
