"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 email Dan Griffin at danielg@csufresno.edu. Many of those living close to Newman Center have come to rely on the meals we serve. Join us in serving this need!

RCIA Sponsors

Our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults program (RCIA) is growing in numbers and we need more and more sponsors. At Easter 9 people were received into the Church and we have 9 more going through the process with another 7 just starting out. This is great news!

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 call our Director of RCIA, Charles Arokiasamy at 286-6372 or email charles.arok@icloud.com.
