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.


PARISH NEWS & EVENTS

ANNUAL PAULIST APPEAL (1/21-22)

Paul - I have kept the faithOn the weekend of Jan 21-22, we will be having our Annual Paulist Appeal. Our Paulist Seminarian, Evan Cummings, CSP, will be speaking on the Paulist Fathers.  The Paulist Fathers were founded in 1858 by Fr. Isaac Hecker and four other priests, each a convert to Catholicism.   Hecker firmly believed that America’s democratic ideals and respect for individual rights and freedom created the perfect atmosphere in which the Church could grow and thrive. With boundless energy, Hecker traveled thousands of miles, crisscrossing the country to spread the Gospel to largely non-Catholic audiences. The Paulist Fathers today continue his legacy by spreading the Gospel with modern means through preaching, publications, visual media, and the Internet. We need your support to continue this important mission, especially as our society becomes more secular.
