Lector Meeting

Sunday September 28th 2:00PM – Newman Centre

Being a lector involves proclaiming the Scripture readings during Sunday Mass and thereby offering your voice as a means by which God’s people listen to his Word. Our first lectors meeting will be this Sunday September 28th at 2:00PM at Newman. If you would like to be a lector for this year we would love to see you there!

Faith Studies

Faith studies are groups of 4-6 men or women who meet once a week for six weeks during the semester to go through a study about the Catholic faith. It is open to both Catholics and non-Catholics. Many students enjoy the new friendships they form and having an opportunity every week to spend some time growing in their faith. If you are interested in joining please send your availability to as soon as possible so the Faith Study co-ordinators can put you in a group.

Adoration and Evening Prayer

Adoration and Evening Prayer is a great opportunity to connect with God. After every mass there is adoration from 4:30-5:30 ending with evening prayer. If you would like to attend adoration or lead Vespers every week there is a signup sheet that has been posted outside the chapel.


Every Friday our 4:00pm Mass will be said for the Newman Catholic Students’ Society. Please join us!

Remember SNS is every Saturday at 6 PM. If you want good food and good company come then to the Centre. Have an idea? Sign up and impress those around you.

Theology Thursdays: “Just War”

Thursday @ 7pm

YOUCAT on Tap: The Lord’s Prayer

Friday 5:30PM – 7PM

What is YOUCAT on Tap? See answer below!

Jesus’ entire life was a single continuous prayer. The gospel writers also recount many instances when Jesus withdrew to pray, when he prayed publicly, and that faithful day when one of his disciples ask him: “Lord, teach us to pray…” (Luke 11:1). Jesus responded by teaching his disciples “The Lord’s Prayer” or “The Our Father”. The “Lord’s Prayer is the only prayer that Jesus himself taught His disciples. St Thomas Aquinas described it as “the most perfect prayer”. Tertullian described it as “the summary of the whole Gospel”.

Many of us know this prayer by heart, but few of us have stopped to ponder what it means. This Friday, with the help of our YOUCATs, we will explore the rich teaching and spiritual meditation found within The Lord’s Prayer. Beer and pizza will be served at 5pm, & YOUCAT will begin at 5:30pm.

If you are attending the Challenge Weekend, a group will be leaving the Newman Centre at 7pm and taking the metro to St Willibrords in Verdun.

What is YOUCAT on Tap?

YOUCAT on Tap is an open faith/theology/ethics/life discussion group that meets every Friday afternoon. Using the Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church, we attempt to answer your questions about God & life. YOUCAT on Tap is open to anyone with questions about the Catholic faith (whether you are Catholic or not, whether you believe in God or not).

Ecumenical Prayer on Sunday Nights!

“I ask…on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them as you have loved me.” (John 17:20-23)

Would you like to come together with other Christian groups on campus to celebrate unity and ask more for the love and power of God in his ministry in McGill through us? Come join us each Sunday at 7:00 pm in the Presbyterian College auditorium (basement) for praise and worship, testimonies as to how God is working in the different groups and individuals, and to PRAY PRAY PRAY – for this city, this campus, and one another. If you’re interested in going, feel free to head on over, invite your friends, or contact VP Outreach Katie at for more details (or to be your personal buddy to tag along with you!). Peace to you!
