What is UMD Newman?

We are the Catholic Community of the University of Minnesota Duluth. It’s summertime, so we have a lighter schedule on campus (see events for June-July 2018 below.) If you are away, stay connected by listening to four years of archived homilies, watching videos, and following us on Facebook.

The Voyage

July is all about The Voyage. We start with Mass at 5:00,  BBQ at 5:30, Talk at 6:10.   Then Speedball down by Lake Superior at Park Point with Dairy Queen and hanging out afterwards.

What’s it like to attend The Voyage? The evenings are totally chill and there are always new people every Wednesday night.  The talk is never over people’s heads and it meant to be a word of encouragement, practical wisdom for living a Christian life, or even simply the basics of “Why” we believe what we believe.

Speedball is a super easy game to pick up.  It is a combination of soccer, Ultimate Frisbee (without the Frisbee), tag, and (non-contact) rugby.  Guys and girls love it. Non-Soccer players (myself amongst them) love it.  Everyone who likes running around with a group of friends will like it!
