Newman Hall is the Roman Catholic community at the University of California, Berkeley. We are a Eucharistic community, striving to make the promise and challenge of the Gospel and the Catholic tradition a tangible reality in our own lives and the lives of the university community, the residents of our parish, and those drawn to us by the movement of God’s grace. For 101 years we have been served and guided by the Paulist Fathers and their mission of evangelization, reconciliation, and ecumenism & interfaith relations.

Though Fr. Al is living at the Mercy Center, his legacy lives on in all the wonderful ways he has touched students and resident community members during his 33 years of ministry at Newman. We are establishing a Fr. Al Fund in honor of him so Newman can continue the wonderful ministries he championed at Newman – spiritual direction and student counseling, discernment group, candlelight Mass, outreach to students on campus, RCIA, faculty dinner and discussion, celebrating the sacrament of reconciliation, and student retreats.
Please prayerfully consider how you might financially support this fund. You can donate through envelopes (found in the Newman lobby) or through our online giving, FaithDirect. If you are giving through check, just note on it, “Fr. Al Fund.” Don’t forget to also consider including the fund in your will.
