Hey everyone! I wanted to let you know about an opportunity to participate in our "Mirror the March" event next Friday. There will be Mass at the Cathedral at 10 am, and a walk to the Capitol following (with an option to remain at the Cathedral in Eucharistic Adoration). You must RSVP for the Mass, and you can do so, as well as find more information and resources here:
Its that time of year once again when we begin to think about our New Year’s Resolutions. Resolving to pray the rosary daily would be a wonderful resolution to consider!

A good way to help keep the resolution spark alive is to have a special rosary that looks and feels great in your hand. We offer rosaries made from a number of natural materials with a variety of bead sizes and weights…. Some feel very substantial and some are very light weight. We have a rosary to suit almost everyone.

Take a look at our many offerings, and make the resolution to pray the rosary each day in 2021 and for decades to come!
Looking for a way to grow in your relationship with Christ while igniting the faith in thousands of Catholic youth? Consider being a SPIRITUS Missionary! Spend nine months living in community with other young adults, travel the state of Wisconsin, and help young people encounter the truth of the Catholic faith. Check out to learn more!

Donor Video Series: Small Groups

This month, we are giving you a glimpse of our Small Groups and what they mean to two of our current students. Please take 2 minutes to be inspired by how these young adults continue to grow in their faith. Because of your generosity as a donor, you help allow us to purchase bibles for our small groups, as well as many opportunities for students to come together and share their love of God and grow in their faith together.

From all of us at Newman, thank you again for being the difference! We will see you next month.
