Newman News Term 2 Week 8: From the Leader of Mission and Catholic Identity


Newman College welcomed the Archbishop Timothy Costelloe and Bishop Donald Sproxton to launch the archdiocesan fundraiser Lifelink. Our Junior Dance Troupe opened the launch with an inspiring performance to “You Raise Me Up”. The challenge to the students was to consider “How is God calling us to be a Christ-centred Church in Australia that is a joyful, hope filled and servant community?”

It was a wonderful celebration and collaboration between all primary schools in the archdioeces. We look forward to supporting the lifelink agencies in 2021 with our annual fundraiser scheduled for Term 3. More information about Lifelink can be found here.

Student Led Prayer 

Friday Week 9 our Faith and Liturgy Captains return to lead students in quiet prayers and reflection. All are welcome from 8.25am in the Champagnat Chapel every Friday.

Thursday morning Community Mass – 8.10am every Thursday

Thank you to Marcellin Guild and Year 6 students  hosted our Thursday morning community Mass in Week 7 and MacKillop Guild and Year 6 who hosted in Week 8. Romero Guild and Year 4 will be hosting in Week 9.

Our community Mass is the perfect way to start your day where students can gather with staff and their parents to begin the day. All parents are invited to attend with their students at least once a term.
