As of Wednesday, the Spring Semester is off and running! I extend a heartfelt, Newman ‘welcome back’ to student, faculty and staff. I trust you all enjoyed the time away from the regular routine of classes, assignments and paper grading and are all rarin’ to go for a new semester of learning and teaching. We are eagerly anticipating another busy semester in Campus Ministry, so keep your eyes peeled for invitations to a variety of events! Here are a few upcoming events:

♦ Mid week Mass and Dinner starts up on Wednesday, January 25th. Mass is at 5:30, meal is served after Mass.
Oh, and just a early reminder, Ash Wednesday is on March 1...the Lenten season is around the corner!
Prayer for the New Semester
Lord, as we prepare for the coming of a new semester, make us ready, attentive and available to hear you. Thank You for the gift of being able to rise each day with the assurance that You walk through it with us. Thank You for the gifts of creativity and uniqueness, and the energy to put them to good use. May all that we are today, all that we try to do today, may all our encounters, reflections, even the frustrations and failings all be placed in your hands. May the work we do and the way we do it, bring new hope, new life, and courage to all we come in contact with this semester. We thank you, Lord.
