Newman Institute

Welcome | Upcoming Events | Ongoing Programs | Submit an Event

The Newman Institute provides both opportunities for ongoing adult faith formation, and training and formation of lay leaders for the new evangelization. It serves as a clearinghouse for events, workshops and courses which are sponsored not only by various diocesan agencies but also by parishes and the three Catholic universities of our diocese.  The goal of the Newman Institute is to help prepare missionary disciples to go and share the Gospel in their homes, parishes, neighborhoods, and workplaces. Current offerings from the Newman Institute include:

  • Foundations of the Faith: A series of two-hour mini-courses for adult faith formation and catechist certification.  Individual parishes host these sessions; click here to check out the calendar.
  • Upcoming Events: This link provides a listing of opportunities for personal growth and leadership formation.
