Masses and All Parish Events Cancelled Until Further Notice
In light of the continued concern surrounding the coronavirus, all Masses and parish events at Newman Parish have been cancelled until further notice. The building is closed.
If you desire the sacrament of confession or the sacrament of anointing because of illness, please contact Fr. Dan Oudenhoven(email@example.com or 715-834-3399) and he will work out an arrangement with you to make it possible.
Lenten Faith Formation Videos
We will continue to send an email with links to 3 videos each week to all parishioners and students with email addresses on record with Newman Parish. Topics will mainly be around Lenten practices/themes of prayer, fasting and almsgiving and Catholic social teaching. Most are short, 5-10 minutes, but a few might be longer. A reflection/discussion question will be included to go along with each video. If you are a student that has not already joined our email list, contact Mikayla at to receive the Lenten Faith Formation videos.
The Diocese of La Crosse seminary admissions board, of which Fr. Dan is a member, met recently to interview prospective seminarians for the Diocese. We are glad to announce that Conner Franz from Newman Parish was accepted as a seminarian for the Diocese. Conner studied at UWEC and CVTC and graduated in 2019 from CVTC. Conner entered the Catholic Church while in college during the Easter Vigil 2016 at Newman Parish. He is taking part in the Journey discernment program this year in La Crosse. Let's keep Conner in our prayers.
Diocesan Annual Appeal
Working Together, Sharing the Joy
Several months ago, we began this year’s Diocesan Annual Appeal at Newman Parish. Our parish is assessed $55,165 to support the Diocesan Appeal. To date 43% of our households have given or pledged to the Appeal for a total of $50,955. This is 92% of the way toward meeting our assessment. THANK YOU to all those who have already given, your generosity is appreciated! But, we do need everyone’s support to meet our goal. Please prayerfully consider giving to the needs of the Diocesan Annual Appeal and the parish’s Charity Appeal. Here at Newman we recommend a gift of $350 to the Diocesan Annual Appeal and $75 to the Newman Charities Appeal to help fund charitable works for local, diocesan and national charities.
