Attention All High School Grads, Parents and Grandparents
Our Teens are becoming Young Adults—starting college with a lifetime of
opportunities in front of them. There will be many choices that they will make during the next 4 years, let’s help them to stay connected to their faith while they are making those choices! Let’s help our young people keep a faith connection while they are in college. Many will be away from home and out on their own, what better way to help them stay grounded and give them a safe place to meet new friends than through their University’s Newman Center.
Newman Centers are Catholic ministry centers at non-Catholic universities throughout the country. These Centers provide pastoral services and ministries to their Catholic student population. Through the Newman Connection, students are connected to their Campus Minister and invited to join Catholic Campus Ministry—this becomes their faith community away from home!
It’s simple to make that connection—the only information that is required is the student’s first and last name and the name of the college or university they will be attending in September. Then send this information to Marianne Sheridan, Director for Youth Ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org. This information will be forwarded to the proper Newman Center and your teen will be welcomed in the fall when they arrive at their school.
Let’s help our Young Church stay connected!
