Holy Hour - 7:00 pm Thursday 9/23
In place of a Newman Night, this Thursday will be our first Holy Hour of the year at Holy Rosary! There will be Eucharistic Adoration, readings from Scripture, hymn singing and, of course, time for prayer and reflection. We hope to see you there!
It's Official: Cor ad Cor Retreat is happening 10/15-10/17
Our first annual multi-campus Fall Retreat, Cor ad Cor (Heart to Heart), will be taking place at the Loyola Retreat House in Clinton from Friday October 15th at 5:00pm to Sunday, October 17th and 12:00pm. This collaboration of student leaders and campus ministers from the seven Newman Campuses throughout our Diocese is the first retreat of its kind, and one we hope and expect will launch an annual tradition! Cor ad Cor will be an alternative fall break opportunity this year, meaning that you can attend a full weekend retreat and still have two days of rest before needing to get back to classes. The cost to students will be $40, but if cost is any concern you can feel absolutely free to contact me and we'll work out a way for you attend. Sign up at bit.ly/coradcor1 to secure a spot early!
FIDES Groups are in Full Swing
As many of you know, our student led FIDES groups have started, but it's still not too late to sign up! If you want to be a part of one of our weekly small groups, and have a space to talk faith and life with a Christ-centered group of your friends, you can still sign up at bit.ly/fidesfall2021 or email email@example.com for more info.
Serve the Homeless with the Labre Team on Mondays
Our long-running project bringing food out to those experiencing homelessness takes place every Monday evening. If you want to be a part of the team providing food to the hungry and unsheltered any week this semester, whether to prepare food for the runs or to travel with a team of students to take it hot out to our friends where they live, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and our Labre Leadership Team will get you on the volunteer list!
Our weekly talk series. Enjoy fellowship with other Case Catholics, and learn and grow on your faith and spiritual journey. The fall 2020 semester will have Newman Nights on Zoom and a couple in person. Check back to the website for more information and Zoom links.
Program from 6:30-8:00pm
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.
