More about #GivingTuesday:

Entering its sixth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (November 28) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.

100% of this year's donations will go to help build community at the Newman Center through our community night ministry. Each Thursday following the 10pm Mass, students are invited to a themed night, which feature student testimonials, group games, snacks, and Christ-centered conversation. Many of our students say that going to one of these events was their initial invitation into the Newman Center community, which they now consider a second family!

Carole Fest: A Concert Benefit for Gianna Women's Homes

On Sunday, December 10th, 2017, Catholic Social Services will present Carole Fest, A Benefit for St. Gianna Women's Homes. Area Catholic choirs will perform Advent and Christmas songs of the season in the beautiful setting of St. Thomas Aquinas Church on the campus of UNL. The afternoon will also include a raffle drawing and refreshments following the concert.

The concert is $10 per person or $25 per family and begins at 2pm. See you there! 

About St. Gianna: In the Spring of 2011, we opened on a new 24 apartment unit which is sorely needed for victims of domestic violence and those escaping abortion. This is in addition to the existing three bedroom home we already have. Collectively, this program is called St. Gianna Women’s Homes. We now have the capability to provide a safe place for over 100 women and children. Though it will serve women of all faiths in the Diocese of Lincoln, St. Gianna Women’s Homes will not make any recommendations or referrals contrary to the Catholic faith and is staffed by the Marian Sisters.
