"For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead."
- James 2:26
There are many different opportunities within the Newman Center where you can get involved. Check out a few of the opportunities below... Any questions? Please don't hesitate to ask the contact provided.
Food Recovery Network
If you would like to participate in helping feed the less fortunate, we could use some additional volunteers, especially from 3:00pm to 5:00pm in the Newman Center Cafeteria Friday evenings. If you would like to get involved in the Food Recovery Program at Newman Center, please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many of those living close to Newman Center have come to rely on the meals we serve. Join us in serving this need!
Our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults program (RCIA) is growing in numbers and we need more and more sponsors.
Pope Francis said that all Christians are called to share their faith with others – Evangelization. Here is a wonderful opportunity to share your faith.
All you need is to be an active Catholic interested in sharing your faith with others. If you are interested please contact our Director of RCIA, Charles Arokiasamy at email@example.com.
Altar Linen Care
We are in need of a few individuals to help with altar linens. Duties include picking up the linens from the Newman Center, washing, drying, and ironing the linens, and returning them to the sacristy. Contact Jenna at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 436-3434 if you are interested in helping.
Communion to the Homebound
Pastoral Care Ministry is a ministry for those wishing to bring communion to the homebound and hospitalized members of the parish. If you are interested in this ministry please contact Deacon Bill Lucido at 436-3434 or email@example.com.
Do you have a knack for hosting events or are a people person? The Newman Center hosts a small social with donuts and coffee after Sunday morning Masses. If you attend a morning Mass and would like to help, please contact the office at 436-3434.
We serve a hot, home-cooked meal to hungry college students every Wednesday night during the fall and spring semesters. Would you be willing to provide a main dish (serves 10-12), salad, dessert, OR sodas once a month? Cooks are not required to stay and help serve, but we are also in need of several volunteers to take turns helping with set up, serving the meal, and clean up afterward. If you are interested in helping with this ministry contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Catholic Charities Truck
On the third weekend of the month, we have the Catholic Charities Truck in our East Parking Lot to collect donations for the Catholic Charities thrift store. Volunteers are needed before and after all Masses. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the office at 436-3434 or email@example.com.
We give away bags of food to those in need on the third Friday of each month at 5:30pm. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Edgar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
