A rich history in heritage

Father John Fogliasso leads the Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman Mass during Heritage Month.

February represents Heritage Month at Newman University — a chance to celebrate the founders of Newman, the Adorers of the Blood of Christ (ASC), namesake Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman and Catholic tradition.

The Newman campus honored the feast days of St. Brigid, St. Maria De Mattias — founder of the ASC — and Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman.

The Newman Athletics Hall of Fame reception, game and awards banquet took place along with a pep rally to encourage high spirits for Homecoming.

High Tea welcomed all to enjoy the free, long-standing tradition and social event featuring English tea, finger sandwiches and delectable desserts.
