Welcome to the Newman Catholic Community

…your home away from home!

During the pandemic of COVID19 we will give updates on the home page regarding Mass on Sundays and other events. Let us all pray for our nation and our world and for the victims of COVID19, their families and those recovering from the virus. We also hold our health professionals, civic workers, and first responders up in prayer. 

All public prayer and public celebration of the Eucharist has ceased until further notice. We are encouraged to watch Mass online using Word on Fire, EWTN, or go to dio.org. We are encouraged to continue fasting and praying, especially seeking the intercession of Mary, our Mother in faith.  Mass from our chaplain on Sundays: http://youtu.be/Ra-NcO6xgw8. Join us online each day at 1 pm to pray a Rosary together on FB: @newmaneiu and on Instagram: eiunewmancenter. Also Stations on Friday at 3 pm.  

Fr. Braden, our chaplain is available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick by request only. Please contact him directly at 217-720-5615. We encourage you to also pray the Novena to St. Charles Borromeo during this crisis. St. Charles was a tremendous witness of God’s love and hope during the plague in the city of Milan. Click here
