Rich history and timeless tradition are important traits of Newman University. The two come together throughout Heritage Month, celebrated each year in February.

The celebration honors the university’s namesake, John Henry Cardinal Newman, and its founders, the Adorers of the Blood of Christ (ASC). Events scheduled throughout the month will honor the university’s history and mission.

The celebration begins Thursday, Feb. 5, with Mass in celebration of St. Maria De Mattias, founder of the ASC, in St. John’s Chapel.

Heritage Month includes popular events such as the homecoming game, a Mardi Gras celebration, a “Lunch and Learn” with Father Tatro, high tea, the Cardinal Newman Mass, and a mission talk delivered by Director of Mission Effectiveness Charlotte Rohrbach, ASC.
