While the Newman Center is open this week, the campus administration has asked that no group meetings be held this week. With this in mind, the following is how the Newman Center will operate:
There will be no in-person events in the Newman Center. All events will be held virtually.
Wednesday Night Mass will still take place at the church, but we will not have social time afterward. We will have cookies ready for pickup so that you can take them home.
Bible studies will meet virtually for at least the first week.
Everyone must strictly follow the social distancing and face covering rules. Please make sure that you are both wearing a face covering and social distancing six feet at all times. When you are eating, please sit down at a table away from everyone else. You absolutely must stay six feet away from everyone when you remove your mask. Also, use the spray bottles to disinfect your place after you eat.
Follow the instructional signs around Newman to the letter.
If you use public transportation for your travels over break, you must quarantine for seven days according to campus rules.
The building will still remain open. You may log in to the Newman Zoom to attend our online events while you are in the Newman Center, but please do not congregate around each other's computer screens.

We are dependent on the Newman Center and St. Pat's to continue doing this.
