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!
Food for the Homeless
Sign up for one (or more!) of our Food for the Homeless ministries this spring and summer. We are always looking for volunteers, especially in the next three months, when students are gone for the summer.
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, Volunteer Coordinator, at (614) 291-4674 x107 or email@example.com.
Around the Diocese
Volunteers Welcome! The JamesCare for Life Garden of Hope is a vegetable garden located on Ohio State’s Waterman Farm near the corner of Lane Ave and Kenny Rd. The mission of the garden is to provide evidence-based nutritional information and education on the health benefits of a plant-based diet. The Garden provides cancer patients and their families the opportunity to harvest fresh vegetables, as well as take part in various nutritional programs that are held throughout the summer and early fall. They are currently seeking adult volunteers to help with planting, weeding and general maintenance of the garden. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and although no previous gardening experience is necessary, volunteers must be physically able to perform general garden chores. Both individual volunteers and groups are welcome to participate. Volunteer shifts are on the second and fourth Mondays of the month from 9-11a.m. and the first Saturday of the month from 7:30-9 a.m. If interested, please contact the Garden of Hope coordinator, Amy Barr at Amy.firstname.lastname@example.org.
