husker catholic live dinner

Husker Catholic Live 2018

As part of our annual Husker Catholic Live dinner at the Nebraska Student Union on November 9th, 2018, we welcomed student Lizzy Isaacson, alumni and Olympic medalist Curt Tomasevicz, and our own beloved Father Robert Matya to share their reflections on the theme of “Anchored in Hope.”


We are elated to announce that you helped us exceed our $40,000 goal in our HCL matching gift challenge!

It’s true! After the dinner, some generous friends helped to close out our goal. THANK YOU!

Each of your gifts was DOUBLED upon receipt (thanks to some anonymous friends of ours), which means that $80,000 is going straight to the fund that allows for the life-changing ministries at the Newman Center! Everything from Bible studies and our RCIA program, to community nights and Theology on Tap events, to offering the sacraments as often as we are able– you are making these growing ministries possible with your generous giving.

A huge thank you to this year’s sponsors:
