The Catholic Service and Ministry Appeal… Blessed to receive, chosen to give      Do you remember your or your children’s or, perhaps, your grandchildren’s first time away from home attending college?  While greatly anticipated, it can also be a challenging, sometimes overwhelming experience.  Today hundreds of young adults find a comfortable, secure, faith-based home during their college years as a “family” member of the Newman Catholic Student Center at Southern Illinois University.  Your contribution to The Catholic Service and Ministry Appeal helps makes this experience possible.  Partner with Newman’s students and staff by making your gift to The Appeal today!       


Today is World Mission Sunday.  We celebrate this day by remembering our baptismal call – to bring the Gospel to all!  The collection today for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith ensures the work and service of the Mission Church, as it supports priests, religious and lay leaders who offer the Lord’s mercy and concrete help to the most vulnerable communities in the Pope’s missions.  Thank you for your generosity.
