Dead Theologians Society – Monday, April 15, 2019 at 7pm – Downstairs in the Ahles Room.
Ever wondered how saints are important to the Catholic faith and to us? Join us for our last DTS of the semester! We will be learning about the life of a saint and their heroic virtue, and most importantly how they are a good example for us today!
A surprise treat will also be served. All college students welcome!

Rosary – Do you need some inner peace? The Rosary is a powerful tool to find inner peace in today’s noisy, busy world. In the Rosary we ponder the life of Jesus through the eyes of his mother.  All are invited to pray the Rosary every Tuesday during the semester at 8:30pm in the Chapel.  Prayer is powerful.

Spirit & Life – Join us every Wednesday evening as we worship the real presence of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament through prayer, song and sacred silence.  Confession will be available at 8:30pm. The evening continues with 9pm Mass.
Mass will be followed by fellowship and pizza.  Join us and bring a friend.

Holy Thursday Chapel Visits – Thursday, April 18, 2019 from 8pm – 12:30am
Join us at Newman Catholic for Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 8pm.
After Mass we will meet in the lobby and then go on a prayerful pilgrimage to visit 3 or 4 Churches
in the diocese of Rockford to pray at their altar of repose to spend time in prayer with Jesus
where we will recall the Agony in the Garden, and the arrest and imprisonment of Jesus by
spending time in silent adoration, to answer Christ’s invitation “Could you not, then, watch one hour with me?” (Matt 26:40)
