This is one of my favorite places. Before I lived in Chadron I lived in Grand Island. I often went to this place on my days off. A wonderful place to rest and pray. Even though it is a ways from Chadron I would encourage a visit to the Schuyler Retreat House. They have many organized programs but it is a good place to just "be". Fr. Todd Philipsen
St. Benedict Center Schuyler, NE

Last call for Alternative Spring Break Trip! If you're wanting to go on the (free to you) trip from Sunday, March 8th- Wednesday, March 11th, let me know ASAP! We need to turn in paperwork no later than this weekend.
It'll be a lot of fun! You'll be fed well, meet a lot of new people, and you get to sleep in your own bed each night (I don't know if that's a perk for others, but for me it's always nice to get a good nights sleep) 🙂
Contact me at email@example.com or through Facebook!

PRAYERS for me and my family and friends and Ervin And Greg and my back
Are you looking for something to do over your spring break? The Newman House is offering an alternative spring break opportunity that is free to you!
Over the course of four days, we will drive to and from Oglala, SD to volunteer with Sr. Barb at the parish and surrounding areas! An awesome addition to this trip from our previous adventure with Sr. Barb is that there will be another college there at the same time! Marquette University will be volunteering with Sister during out time, so we will get to meet and spend time with a whole group of Marquette students, too!
This trip will run from Sunday, March 8th- Wednesday, March 11th. This gives you an opportunity to catch up on sleep/ homework before we go and rest up after we get back. Those who have a short drive home will also have the chance to spend time at home as there are four days left of the break after we conclude our trip. It's a win-win all around!
Please RSVP to Amy either via this post or at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 7th! ... See MoreSee Less
This should be a Great opportunity to serve and share — we know that it is in giving that we receive Fr Todd
I hope your semester is off to a good start.
I missed the first Newman night. It felt good
to be back with you at Newman this week.
I wanted to share with you a slightly different version
of the prayer of St. Francis. Fr. Todd PhilipsenSt Francis Prayer
Lord, make me a channel of your peace.
That where there is hatred, I may bring love.
That where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness,
That where there is discord, I may bring harmony,
That where there is error, I may bring truth,
That where there is doubt, I may bring faith,
That where there is despair, I may bring hope,
That where there are shadows, I may bring light,
That where there is sadness, I may bring joy.
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort, than to be comforted,
To understand than to be understood,
To love that to be loved.
For it is by forgetting self that one finds.
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven,
And it is by dying that one awakens to eternal life.
*This is the version of the St Francis Prayer that St Teressa of Calcutta prayed. ... See MoreSee Less
I always look forward to mass at Newman. I hope you can join us. You don't need to be a regular at Newman to take part in an individual activity. Who needs Netflix drama when you have Scripture?

I hope you can join us for mass. A nice way to be together in the middle of the week. Remember you don't need to be a regular at Newman to attend mass or any other activity. Fr. Todd
Pat Alphin died last night at her home in Chadron. Pat was a long time supporter of Newman Ministry. She was known for cooking for the weekly Newman Meals. Her Mississippi Mud Cake and Pulled BBQ chicken were fan favorites.
Pat loved her dogs. As Pat's health declined, she often had an arrangement with Newman students to walk her dog. After the early morning dog walk Pat would invite the Newman Student to share breakfast with her.
Pat was on hospice home care for an extended period of time. I would visit her every Friday at 11 a.m. I looked forward to and enjoyed our visits. She had a true Irish wit and her stories were great. Pat's faith was rich and deep.
There will be a Wake Vigil Service Wed. evening at 7 p.m. at St. Patrick's Church. Funeral will be Thurs. @ 10 a.m.
Rest in Peace Good Friend.

Today is the Holy Day of Mary Mother of God.
I came across this You Tube Video. It features
Jesse Manibusan talking about Mary and singing/praying
his litany of Mary. It is awesome and prayerful. Check it out. You may remember that Jesse visited
Chadron in September. He dropped by Newman House on
Sunday night to pray and sing with the Newmanites. It was awesome.
