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!
Work for Justice!
House Meetings: Each year, B.R.E.A.D. Justice Ministry begins its annual cycle with the Listening Process. It hold “house” meetings at homes or at the Newman Center to have sacred conversations about serious community problems. We take these concerns surfaced in the house meetings from B.R.E.A.D. congregations to B.R.E.A.D. assembly in November and select a new social justice issue to act on. Please say YES! to attending a meeting. Sign-up today! For more information, contact email@example.com or visit B.R.E.A.D. on facebook.
Catholic Relief Services Sandwich Saturdays
Join Catholic Relief Services (CRS) volunteers once a month in making sandwiches for Star House, a youth shelter in Columbus. Bring your own jar of peanut butter or jelly or a loaf of bread and join other volunteers for this service opportunity. Next dates: Saturdays, Oct. 12 and Nov. 16 from 11 a.m. to noon.
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process through which adults become full members of the Catholic Church. Community support is essential to this process so if you're a member of Catholic Church, please consider serving as a sponsor. This is a beautiful way to grow in your faith and journey with others as they grow in their faith. For more information or questions, please contact Kelly Sollinger at firstname.lastname@example.org or (614) 291-4674 x116.
