The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life -
The strength of any faith community is reflected in the commitment of its members to support and nourish growth in holiness, knowledge, and understanding.
In striving to best serve our student parishioners, Campus Ministry creates spirituality, service, and teaching opportunities through the year.
We welcome students, residents, and visitors to join us for liturgy, prayer, and community.
As a Catholic community of Christian disciples filled with gratitude and the Holy Spirit, St. Paul's Newman Center celebrates and lives the Sacraments. We bring the Gospel to the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Wyoming through vibrant liturgies, hospitality, authentic stewardship, education, formation, empowerment, and support.
Throughout the weeks from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday, our 10% tithe from the Sunday Gift Offerings will go to Sustainable Harvest International (SHI).
SHI is an organization whose mission is to provide farming families in Central America with the training and tools to preserve our planet's tropical forests while overcoming poverty. Their model equips low-income farmers with the resources to implement alternatives to slash-and-burn agriculture, sustain the land for future generations of farmers, halt tropical deforestation, and build strong, self-supporting communities through agribusiness. You can learn more about their mission, the communities they serve, and how to get involved by visiting their website.
St. Paul's Newman Center chose Sustainable Harvest International as the organization we would support with our 2014 Lenten Project and 2015 Easter Project. To see how our financial gift was benefiting farmers in Panama, we organized a service trip over spring break 2015. Four students and six resident parishioners traveled to the rural hillsides of Panama and worked on a variety of service projects while staying with local families. The above video gives a sample of this wonderful experience, and you can read more about two parishioners' experiences here.
Over the next two weekends, if you would like to make a direct donation to our Easter project to support SHI, please do so by indicating on the memo line of your check. So far this year, we have raised $10,889 for this very worthy project! The generosity of our parish is extraordinary, and it is our joy to share our abundance with those less fortunate.
In recognition of the Memorial Day holiday. Safe journey to all who will be traveling on this weekend.
The offices will be closed for Staff Planning and Evaluation.
