Newman Apostolate Fund
Jim Coglianese, Chairman
Illinois Knights of Columbus #1 Charity.
The Newman Apostostolate Fund was created to support Newman Centers on the college campuses in the state of Illinois. At a time when a young persons faith is tested the most, Newman Centers provide a Catholic home to students to are away from their families for the first time.
The Illinois State Council has designated the Newman
Campus Ministry Fund Appeal as our #1 charity.
What better way for the Knights of Columbus to
exemplify charity and encourage vocations to Church
ministry than a monetary donation to assist in the
continued operation of Newman Centers and Programs?

Newman: A move in the right direction
The Newman Campus Ministry program plays an important role in
keeping Christ in our young adults. The following paraphrased message from a Newman
Center bulletin reveals how Newman Centers respond to the
personal and religious needs of college students, both
Catholic and non-Catholic.
At business class I learned how to earn money;
At the Newman Center we learn how to share it.
At management I learned how to allocate resources;
At the Newman Center we learn to be good stewards of the earth.
At anthropology I learned where humans come from;
At the Newman Center I learned where we're going.
At geography I learned to recognize borders;
At the Newman Center we are taught to see through them.
At history I read the perspective of the victors;
At the Newman Center we develop solidarity with the poor.
At computer science I learned to manipulate information;
At the Newman Center we learn to seek the truth.
At advertising I was taught to sell an idea;
At the Newman Center we are challenged to be honest.
At school I was taught to succeed;
At the Newman Center we are called to help those who fail.
At the Newman Center we learn to be Christ for one another.
