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.
