To kick off the new school year, we invite you to a cookout on the front lawn on Wednesday, August 31, following the 5:00 p.m. liturgy. Current and retired faculty and staff and spouses are invited to come share grilled fare with the students and welcome them to the University.
Residents: Could you help with the cookout? Volunteers, salads and desserts are needed. If you could provide a side dish or volunteer your time, sign-ups are in Bishop Newell Hall, or contact Lillie.
Living and Giving in Christ is the Annual Appeal for the Diocese of Cheyenne. There is an article on page 10 in the latest issue of Wyoming Catholic Register (click here to find it electronically) that further explains how your contributions are used to fund various ministries across our Diocese and beyond. It is our responsibility as members of this faith community to help support the Diocese. Please prayerfully consider how you can contribute to this important appeal. There are donation envelopes in the worship space or you can donate online - if contributing online, please make sure to select St. Paul's Newman Center (10150) as your home parish.
We have made pledges totaling $68,257 which is 90 percent of our total goal of $76,184. We need everyone's prayers and participation to be successful! If we do not make our pledged goal, the difference will come out of St. Paul's Newman Center's general operating budget.
Join St. Paul's Newman Center community in the Out of the Darkness Walk on September 10th
in Washington Park from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. The Out of the Darkness walk is an event put on by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Through this event AFSP's goal is to raise funding to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. For more information or to join our team and help us raise money for this great event follow this link Newman Team.
Please note that we do not celebrate the Sunday 5:00 pm Liturgy or Wednesday Reconciliation when the University of Wyoming is not in session. This means that we will not celebrate the Sunday 5 again until August 28 and Wednesday reconciliation will not resume until September.
In striving to best serve our student parishioners, Campus Ministry creates spirituality, service, and teaching opportunities through the year.
The strength of any faith community is reflected in the commitment of its members to support and nourish growth in holiness, knowledge, and understanding.
As you come to Liturgy on September 3-4, be sure to grab a name tag and greet those around you as we celebrate the Eucharist together. Then join us after the liturgies for donuts and community building in Bishop Newell Hall. Plan to spend a few extra minutes meeting someone new or spending time with members of your faith community.
Where There is Forgiveness, There is Life will be hosted at St. Paul's Newman Center, September 23-24, 2016. In aligning with the jubilee "The Holy Year of Mercy" announced by Pope Francis, featured speakers Immaculée Ilibagiza, Fr. Gregory Boyle, and Fr. Anthony Gittins will convey a common message of compassion and forgiveness. These prominent guests will share with us issues of social justice, tolerance, and discipleship. We extend a warm welcome for you to join us for this extraordinary compilation of inspiring speakers. For more information or to register, please visit our Year of Mercy webpage.
