Bishop Gerald F. Kicanas has scheduled a Listening Session on Marriage and Family here at the Newman Center for Sunday, April 19, from 2:00-4:00 pm in the Main Chapel. At this session he would especially like to hear from the younger set: the recently married, young families, and single college students. However, we encourage all who are interested to attend this opportunity tell the Bishop your concerns about the upcoming Synod and to hear others’ perspectives on the pressures and stresses in our society and the Church on issues related to marriage and family life.


The San Martin de Porres Chapter of the Dominican Laity is offering an ongoing Bible Study. We will be studying Genesis, the first book in God’s love letter to humanity. The study will be held every Saturday from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm in the Newman Center Classroom. We hope to see you there!


The Sustaining Board will serve a wonderful meal in Green Hall on Sunday, April 26 at 6:00 pm following the 5 pm Mass. Come eat, drink, and be merry! All students are invited! The meal is free of charge and a great opportunity to fellowship with other Newman students.


We are still in need of volunteers for upcoming trips to Primavera Men’s Shelter. If you are not familiar, we meet at the Newman Center at 4 am to prepare breakfast for the Primavera Men’s Shelter here in Tucson and usually return by 6:30 am. The next dates are April 12 and May 10. Please contact Andy or call him at (956) 458-7588 if you are interested in volunteering.
