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.

We will also be having a Christmas movie marathon in the lounge.  There will be many different forms of homemade cookies, hot chocolate, coffee, and tea. It’s an opportunity to have a taste of the Christmas season by relaxing on the couches, snuggled in blankets, watching your favorite movies, drinking some hot chocolate, eating homemade cookies, and relieving yourself from the stress that the semester had to offer. Bring your blankets and share your own homemade cookies.
