The Newman Center is very happy to honor this remarkable couple. Tony and Phyllis raised a beautiful family here in Tulsa with eight children, all of whom received their undergraduate degrees from the University of Notre Dame, and are now trying to keep up with their 14 grandchildren! They founded Tulsans for Life in 1973, and Oklahomans for Life in 1978, from which time Tony still serves as President. He has also been Vice-President of National Right for Life for the past 20 years. Phyllis was one of the founders of the local Xavier Medical Clinic, serving as their first Director for eight years until resigning from the position in 2009. She is still a faithful volunteer, spending several days a week serving the Clinic and their ever-growing clientele. They are Knight and Dame in the Knights of the Holy Sepulcher; are members and stewards of St. Mary’s Church; and are Affiliates of the Augustinian Order, the highest honor bestowed on laypersons as members of the Order.
About the TU Catholic Newman Center
Established in 1946, the Newman Center is the largest faith-based organization on the TU campus. Its mission is to prepare university students for a life of faith and leadership in the Catholic Church and service to the world. Students of all faiths are welcome to participate in the Newman Center’s activities and service opportunities.
TU Newman Center students spend spring break volunteering around Tulsa and on mission trips across the world. Each month members of our St. Vincent dePaul Outreach program volunteer at many organizations in Tulsa including Hospitality House, the Tulsa Community Food Bank, and Catholic Charities. Newman students also volunteer as tutors at Kendall-Whittier. On the TU campus, they participate and lead in fundraising efforts to those in need, recruiting efforts for prospective students and lead campus tours.
