On Sunday, October 13th, Pope Francis will canonize 5 new Saints— one of them being our beloved Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman. On Saturday, October 12th, in honor of this wonderful occasion, Archbishop Paul Etienne will celebrate a Vigil Mass at 5pm for our community at the Newman Center. Following Mass, the Newman Center will host a reception featuring food, a short presentation on Cardinal Newman, music and dancing—fun for the whole family! We are excited to celebrate with you, and the entire Church, the canonization of the man who helped shape campus ministry and education at universities. Please RSVP to our Canonization Party so we can plan accordingly.
