Eat Pray Love: Meal plan starting to get a little tight? Well lucky for you, you can always count on a free meal once a week! The ever-talented Sr. Rose prepares a meal for us on Friday nights, which follows a brief, refreshing prayer session as a community to end the week! If you're ever interested just send a quick rsvp to Sr. Rose and stop by!
Mobile Food Pantry: As you may know, the Newman House participates multiple times a semester with St. Mary's food pantry to serve lunch. This month, we expanded to a different part of their ministry. This soup kitchen also partners with Food Bank every second Saturday of the month. A truck full of food donations parks here and volunteers distribute groceries to those in need. This Binghamton Food Bank station serves the highest population of clientele and is matched with the highest number of consistent volunteers. The Newman House is very happy to be a part of such a ministry!
Corn Maze: This month we had the second annual Newman House corn maze trip! Thanks to everyone who came out and tried their hand at finding their way out at night after Eat Pray Love! If social events and trips like this interest you, let us know! We love to put on cool opportunities for all of us to hang out!
Intramural Volleyball Team: New this semester! As you're looking to get more involved with us, we're happy to offer many more social opportunities too! Thanks to all who come out every week to put the time in for the team and have fun too! Be sure to keep an eye on our team as we progress through the playoffs!
Adoration and Praise and Worship: Like every other month, biweekly either praise and worship with music or silent adoration was held in the Newman House chapel. Again, this would be a great resource to add to your routine for Lent! Keep checking online for upcoming opportunities!
Sandwich Making: On October 23rd, the Newman House came together to make sandwiches to donate to the Salvation Army. Again, thank you so much to those who donate their time to us so we can continually accomplish amazing acts of service. Remember to keep your eyes peeled for upcoming events if you're interested in acts of charity!
Who Am I Retreat: Many thanks to Sister Rose for facilitating the annual Who Am I retreat. As always, this is such a great opportunity to take a break from the hectic semester and reflect on who we are as young Catholics and people trying to live their most authentic lives. Everyone who participated stayed overnight at the Newman House to really enjoy some time "away" from campus!
S'mores at the Newing Fire Pit: As the nice weather retreats from us, thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed s'mores with us as we toasted them up at the Newing fire pit. We always look forward to the fun we can have together!
