We Moved!

In mid-September 2018, we relocated temporarily to the newly refinished Lower Level of the Church where we will hold the majority of our programming and events for the 2018-2019 school year. You can access this through the glass link in the rear of the parking lot along Chestnut St.. We will then move into our new Newman Center in the Fall of 2019. Check out the progress here!

Please note: We have a temporary entrance for our Parish Offices during our redevelopment. To access the offices, please use the marked door at the rear of the parking lot along Chestnut St and head up the three flights of steps. If you need to use the elevator please call us ahead of time. The entrance to the lower level of the Church is no longer accessible via 38th St. Please enter through the glass link in the rear of the parking lot as well.

Shoot us a message!
