During the academic year, Winthrop students, faculty and staff join members of the local community at the Oratory Chapel for 6 PM Sunday Mass. Winthrop students as well as members of the local community share the ministries of this liturgy. We are always looking for students to lector and serve as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion as well as Music Ministers. In addition to those ministries, our Winthrop Newman students prepare and proclaim the Prayers of the Faithful, gather the weekly offering and bring our gifts to the altar during each mass. Once a month our entire community gathers in Newman Hall parlor located next to the chapel for a Community Social. Food and drinks are provided. We also have a Community Service project each semester that the students coordinate and everyone participates in. In the past these projects have benefited the Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen and Magnolia Manor Nursing Home.
