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.

Prayer is the truly the most cherished gift you can give to the Newman Center. First and foremost on this #GivingTuesday, we want to ask for your prayers.

Please pray for all the students who walk through the doors of the Newman Center this year. Please pray for our staff whose dedicated talents make our ministries to thousands of young seekers possible. Please pray for Father Matya and Father Mills who work 7 days a week aiding students on their journey toward God. We know that not all have the ability to give large monetary donations of support, but we all have time right now to lift each other up in prayer!

We want to pray for you this #GivingTuesday, too. The Newman Center’s staff holy hour this morning is dedicated to your intentions. Please message us any specific intentions for which we can pray! 

100% of this year's donations for #GivingTuesday this year 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!
