Newman's Coffee Hour...a message from organizers, Ann & Megan

We haven't had a chance to see one another and catch up in a while. So much has happened and I would love to know how you are doing. We can't get together as we usually would in the Quigley room or in the hallway outside the chapel but we can gather on Zoom. Please come to a Newman Zoom Coffee Hour on Sunday January 24th beginning at 12:30. Please use the link below to drop by the gathering to let us know how you are doing and to catch up with other Newmanites. We will Zoom for about an hour, depending on how many people attend. You don't have to stay the whole hour. Come when you can, for as long as you can. Please pass this email on to others you think would like to come.

Hope you can come, it would be great to see you!
