My faith is so important to me. The Newman Catholic Student Center was my home away from home for 10 years as I worked towards my degree at Northern Illinois University.
Within the walls I found space to know myself and within the people I met I found true friendship. My young adult faith was formed through retreats and service trips. The foundation for my day to day living faith is grounded in my experiences both as student and staff member over that decade at Newman.
I carry with me many lessons of faith, hope, and love and am so grateful for the many friends I still have today that I made at the Newman Center.
If you were impacted by the Newman Center in some way, I invite you to donate through the Newman Foundation** (please put Jenna’s Birthday Wish in the Purpose box so I can track the donations).
