UPCOMING EVENTS

Thursday at 7:00 | Virtual Newman Night: "Hot Ones" AMA 

Thursday, December 3 at 7pm
Normally, we finish off the semester with a game night, but this semester has been out of the ordinary so we did our game night before you all left campus. That left me with a question: what would be something fun to do for our final Thursday that also can help us grow in faith as we typically do at Newman Nights. My solution? A reddit-style "ask me anything..."
...With a twist.
Those of you who have seen the YouTube series "Hot Ones" and their sub-series "Truth or Dab" may know where I'm going with this. I'm going to give you all a chance to ask me any question you've had about the Catholic faith, anything you've wanted to know or to understand better, and I'm going to try to give a good answer to every question. If I can't give a good answer, there's a consequence for me: I will have an assortment of increasingly spicy foods in front of me, and every time there's a question I can't give a good answer to - I will eat the next spiciest thing. So if you've ever wanted to see someone with a mouth freshly burning from eating a Carolina Reaper sauce trying to explain why different Christian traditions have different levels of devotion to the Virgin Mary, or to try to dodge eating a raw habanero pepper by explaining why we have so many images of Jesus and the saints when one of the commandments is "you shall not make a graven image," this may be the only chance you get in your lifetime to do so!

FIDES Sign-ups for Spring
We had another great semester of FIDES this year, and I'm so grateful to all of our student ministers for doing such an awesome job in leading their small group communities! From studies on the Seven Deadly Sins or the Virgin Mary, to working together through books about "Why We're Catholic," to free conversations about controversial subjects in the Church, there is a FIDES group for everyone! If you didn't participate in FIDES this semester and would like to join a group, or if you need to switch groups next semester for any reason, fill out

If you're already in a group and plan to stick with the same group of people, you're good and don't need to do anything!


Virtual SEEK Conference 2/4-2/7
Two years ago, we took a small group of students to the Fellowship of Catholic University Students' national SEEK conference, which was an incredible and deeply enriching experience! This winter, FOCUS is going to be making this conference virtual so that Catholic college students around the country can have that same experience virtually. This conference will include talks by some of the biggest names in the American Catholic Church and beyond, and will equip us all to be forces for the Gospel in our universities and communities across the country.
This year, Newman will cover 100% of the cost of students who want access to this virtual conference. We've got 10 slots to fill, and may be able to add more if more are interested.

IFC: Graduate Bible Study

Wednesdays, 6pm

We’re on to week six of our Bible Study on Mary this week! We’re shifting directions a little bit from talking about the typical teachings about Mary that Christians from other denominations disagree with, to talking about why we give Mary the moniker “Mother of Sorrows.” Join us in the IFC or email steve.perry@case.edu for a Zoom link.

FIDES SMALL GROUP MINISTRY

Launched Fall of 2019, FIDES is a small group ministry that seeks to bring together Newman Catholic students, regardless of their year in school, and help them to grow their faith together. Each small group is led by an undergraduate student, and is composed of around ten other students, who decide in what way they will walk toward Christ together, be it a video series, a Bible study, or some other sort of discussion. To sign up for a Fall 2020 FIDES group, fill out the form at bit.ly/fidesfall2020.

LABRE HOMELESS OUTREACH MINISTRY

The main weekly service commitment of Case Catholic is named after St. Benedict Joseph Labre who lived among the poor on the streets. Although we bring a hot meal and other necessities to our friends, conversation and companionship are the most important gifts we give -- and receive.

Interested in learning more?  Contact labreinfo@case.edu

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

Do you have questions about where God is calling you to use your gifts and talents?

Would you like support in developing your relationship with god and making life choices?

A spiritual director is a compassionate listener with a strong background in theology and spirituality. He or she can help you sort through your thoughts and feelings as you grow in your faith, choose a career, or discern about your long term vocation.
