Every Wednesday, during the school year, Cardinal Catholic hosts "Newman Night." It is an opportunity for our students to come together for a meal, fellowship, speakers/activities, and grow in their Faith through prayer and the Sacraments.
General Weekly Newman Night Schedule for Spring 2020:
- Adoration - 5:30 pm
- Dinner Served - 6:30 pm
- Speaker/Activity - 7:15 pm
- Mass - 8 pm
It takes a team to feed a village, and with 50-70 hungry college students attending our dinners every week, we could use all the help we can get! We need groups of volunteers to provide and serve food. These groups can be parish ministry groups, Bible studies, groups from the community, multiple families working together, student groups, etc. Throughout Fall semester we had 50+ college students attending each week.
There have been a variety of dinners provided - casseroles, soups, burgers, hotdogs, roast, pasta, grilled cheese, and so much more. Groups can be creative with what they want to provide. Please try to include gluten-free and vegetarian options. Groups may also opt to pay for a catered meal.
All plates, cups, plasticware, napkins, etc will be provided by St. Francis. Drinks (water and lemonade) will also be provided by St. Francis. You may use the kitchen facilities and space at St. Francis Church to prepare food. Reimbursement for food purchased is available if needed.
Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm each Wednesday after Adoration.
Weekly Dinners will be served in the parish hall for the majority if not all of Spring Semester, though dinners have been served on the front lawn when the weather was nice. Volunteer groups will be notified in advance if the location is ever moved to the front lawn later in the Spring (weather provided).
See available volunteer dates below to sign up!
If you have any further questions or concerns, please reach out to Bri Bruske in Campus Ministry at [email protected] or call the parish office.
