Students gathered after Catholics on Campus
At St. Paul's Newman Center, we hope to have every parishioner involved in ministry that helps us gather as a community and sends us forth to serve others. We typically have the opportunity to sign up for these ministries at the beginning of the spring semester (late January/early February) during our Stewardship of Talent Commitment. If you would like to be involved or would like more information about any of these ministries, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
