Newman's Pre Cana classes are cancelled until January 2021.

If you are now planning your marriage we suggest that you contact your parish priest and have him advise you as to your next step.

Newman will be reevaluating in January 2021 about the 2021 Pre Cana classes.

Priestly Ordination Restrictions

Due to the pandemic & the restrictions for gatherings as mandated by the Commonwealth Deacon Sinh Trinh & the other four Deacons to be ordained will only be allowed 45 guests each.

Deacon Sinh respectfully requested that instead of the attending the Ordination at the Cathedral you attend his first Mass at Newman on August 15th at 4:30 pm.

A special thank you to the Vietnamese Community for providing boxed dinners if you should wish to partake after Mass.

The Ordination will be lived streamed on the diocesan website at www.diospringfield.org.
