Faith and Food – Jan 25

Kicking off the Faith and Food series for this semester, we’ve got TImothy Putnam, the Director of Family Life for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tulsa. Timothy is a convert to Catholicism, really good at music and graphic design, and he’s a great family man.

Timothy will be joining us for a talk on raising a Catholic family in today’s world, walking a daily life with Christ, and respecting the dignity of life from conception to natural death. The food lineup is TBA, but it will be free and yummy. Invite friends, for real.

Be there:
Thursday, January 25, 6:00p
ACAC Great Hall B
RSVP to the event on Facebook


Update: Timothy could not make it last minute (his wife was having a baby!) but Blake Lawson and Mary Hogan graciously came last minute to share their personal testimonies. You can listen to the audio anytime at:


Lent Countdown

Lent 2013 begins Wednesday, February 13. At Newman, we’ll have Mass at the normal 9:30p plus 12:05p for the non-night-owls. Also, start thinking of something inherently good that you will offer up, allowing God, the creator of all good, to work more deeply in your life.

Let the penance begin 5 years, 6 months, 4 days, 18 hours, 25 minutes ago.

2nd Sunday of Ordinary Time

Both 11a and 8p Masses are on the agenda today. We’ll have Confessions 9:45-10:45a plus 6:45-7:45p. Why is it the duty of all Catholics to share the faith? Dig this week’s Are you a BA? section of the bulletin: Bulletin-2013-01-20.pdf

Finally, we leave you with the Gospel reading for next Sunday:

Luke 1:1-4, 4:14-21

Since many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the events
that have been fulfilled among us,
just as those who were eyewitnesses from the beginning
and ministers of the word have handed them down to us,
I too have decided,
after investigating everything accurately anew,
to write it down in an orderly sequence for you,
most excellent Theophilus,
so that you may realize the certainty of the teachings
you have received.

Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit,
and news of him spread throughout the whole region.
He taught in their synagogues and was praised by all.

He came to Nazareth, where he had grown up,
and went according to his custom
into the synagogue on the sabbath day.
He stood up to read and was handed a scroll of the prophet Isaiah.
He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring glad tidings to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.
Rolling up the scroll, he handed it back to the attendant and sat down,
and the eyes of all in the synagogue looked intently at him.
He said to them,
“Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”
