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!

Around the Diocese
OpenDoor Volunteers Welcome!
OpenDoor's mission is to offer HOPE, HELP and HEALING to women, known as a sister, who are recovering from addiction as well as families living in the shadow of their loved ones disease. They are recruiting and training volunteers to launch “Tables.” A Table is the platform through which 6-8 volunteers enter into a transformational relationship with one sister for one year. A transformational relationship is mutual and fosters friendship, love and purpose to each table member. Volunteers, along with the individual being served, establish goals, accountability and develop an implementation plan to assist in establishing life skills. For more information, visit OpenDoor or contact Tammy Adler-Foeller.
