Bill:  frbill@cncumsl.org.  This is a retreat designed for alumni– please reconnect with Newman by taking some time for yourself!

Day of Service:  May 2, 2015, meet at the CNC at 9 am 

It’s been 50 years of Newman giving love to the UMSL community!  Let’s give some love back to Newman… and to St. Ann’s!  Fr. Bill Kempf has lovingly served Newman for 15 years and it’s probably been longer than that since St. Ann’s rectory (his home) received some much needed care.  Volunteer groups will be painting and sprucing up the St. Ann’s rectory, and possibly doing the same to some rooms at the Newman House.  Please come help out!  The more volunteers, the more we can do.   Email Kay to RSVP:  kay@cncumsl.org.  Thank you!!

 

50th ANNIVERSARY PRAYER

Lord God, we thank you!  You have given us a Newman Center

Abundant in Grace, Abundant in Love, Abundant in Community!

For this we are grateful!  Thank you for teaching us about Your total Love, through your Son, Jesus Christ.

Call us deeper into that love in all that we do and in all that we are!

Touch our lives, our relationships, our learning, our efforts.

Enliven our reading and writing and studying with your light.

Let us be your servants, to spread your goodness, your love, and your justice

in all that we do.  Let us BE your Love in the world!

Amen!
