Small Groups – Stationary Members

If you’re looking for a deeper and more meaningful experience of community, consider joining one of Newman’s Small Groups.  A Small Group is 6-10 parishioners that gather on a regular basis for a combination of socializing, learning and discussing various aspects of being Catholic and praying with and for each other.  Contact JoAnn Vruwink at for more information or to sign up for a men’s, women’s or mixed Small Group.

The Search

The Search is an innovative video series that tackles the key questions of every human heart – What do you seek?  Who Am I?  Why a God? etc.  In seven beautifully filmed episodes, host Chris Stefanick and experts from multiple fields of science, medicine, psychology, art, and religion examine our place in the larger story of existence.  This is a great opportunity for those just starting on the journey of faith, but also for those who desire renewal and refreshment.  All are welcome to attend!  Each evening will include a 20-30 minute video and small group discussion.  Dates:  Oct 3, 10, 17, 24, Nov 7, 14, 21.  Time:  7-8:30 pm
