Men Rise Up: A 30-Day Challenge

Rise is a 30-day challenge for all men. You’ll be encouraged to look deep inside to see where change needs to occur, and you’ll come out the other side a better man. But none of us can walk this path alone. So you’ll walk this journey together with other Newman members and college students.

Through this challenge you’ll be invited to accept you identities as a son, brother, spouse, or father. Each day you’ll receive a 5-minute video in you re-mail inbox and be challenged to think and act more deeply upon these identities. Through these daily videos and challenges, one-on-one conversations with a brother, and weekly meetings you’ll experience a profound reorientation in your own life and in your relationships with those around you.

The challenge will start on September 24th and run through October 24th with weekly meetings on Wednesday’s at 7:30 pm at the ERC.

Blessed Is She

Blessed is She is a national ministry that was founded in the Diocese of Phoenix by Jenna Guizar. It is dedicated to serving women of all ages and walks of life. Their main ministries included different small group studies, prayer journals and seasonal devotionals, retreats and regional brunches that are meant to bring women together from all all walks of life.

Starting this fall Newman will adopt this new ministry with the specific mission of bringing together stationary parishioners and college students for a time of prayer, fellowship, and brunch.

The Blessed is She community will be comprised of women, just like you. We are single, married, professionals, students, mamas, and grandmamas too. Enter into a community full of women who want to grow together in faith and friendship.

Dates: February 9th, March 9th, April 13th, May 4th

Time: 9:30-11:00 am

Location: ERC Fireside Lounge
