Newman Hall-Holy Spirit Parish is a Catholic community serving students, faculty, and staff at the University of California, Berkeley and others drawn to us by God.  Nourished by God’s Word, the Sacraments, and the Holy Spirit, we strive to be a spiritual home base for pilgrims endeavoring to be Christ’s disciples, bringing God’s love into the world.  For over 100 hundred years, we have been served and guided by the Paulist Fathers.


Fall Lector Training Workshops

Do you feel called to be a lector?  The lector brings the Word of God to life for the gathered assembly – a prayerful gift of ministry to the Newman community that we share. Our Fall Lector training Workshop will be held on Wed, Oct 26 and Wed, Nov 2 from 7-9pm in the Chapel.  Attendance on both evenings is required to be eligible for assignment in the regular rotation.

If you have any questions, please contact workshop leader Ferdinand Ramos at (925) 209-7176. Whether you have previous lector experience or are just assessing your calling, you are welcome and will find the workshop useful. We welcome new lectors at all Masses, but can especially use more lectors at the Saturday 5pm and Sunday 10pm Masses.
