Next weekend we want to mission forth all who
are graduating and leaving the Newman Center. At the
end of each Mass they will be invited up to the altar to
receive a blessing and a Missioning Packet
SUMMER MASS SCHEDULE ABOUT TO BEGIN
Next weekend, May 17-18th we still have all 5 Masses. Our schedule changes the weekend of May 24-25th to Sunday only at 10 AM and 6 PM. There is no Saturday 4:30 PM Mass in the summer months.
GRADUATION MASS -- MAY 16TH, 5:15pm
As you look back upon your college years at The University of Iowa; the friends you made, the memories you shared, and the knowledge you gained, remember how your involvement at the Newman Center has enhanced those experiences by offering you a faith home away from home. With that in mind, we hope that you can celebrate with us at the Baccalaureate Mass and participate in what has become an annual Newman Center tradition. You will want to talk with your family and mention this event so they can plan to attend if possible. The date is May 16th, the Friday of graduation weekend, at 5:15 PM. If you are interested in attending, please contact Troy at 337-3106 or email@example.com
