Students - Join a CLC
Hey students! Are you looking for a fun and dynamic faith community? Then we have good news for you. Newman is launching a new program called Christian Life Community (CLC).

CLC's are small faith communities whose mission is to support one another as we grow in our personal relationship with Jesus Christ and work with Him to build a more humane, just, and sustainable world.

If you’re interested, sign-up or come on Sunday after 6:30pm Mass, dinner provided!

Contact: Fr. Manh Tran, 310-803-7583, for more info.
CLC Adult Group Leaders Needed
Besides CLC groups for Students, we are going to expand the CLC program to adults. We will begin with the Lenten Series on Thursday nights. We are looking for Adult group leaders. If you’re interested, please see Fr. Manh right after Mass on Sunday or email him.
