NEWMAN HALL, A HOME FOR ALL

Whether you are new to Berkeley or have lived here for years, you are welcome here...

Newman Hall-Holy Spirit Parish is a spiritual home to undergrad and grad students at UC Berkeley, as well as adults and families from the Berkeley/Oakland area and beyond. This special combination of student and resident parishioners has created a unique community of faith that invites all to the love of Christ.

This year we are celebrating our 50th anniversary at our building on 2700 Dwight Way.  On May 13, 1967, our building was dedicated to the Lord, though the first Mass was April 2, 1967 with around 1,000 attending.  Keep an eye out on the bulletin for various events we are having to celebrate 50 years in our distinguished concrete home.  Also keep an eye out for various fixes to our home (e.g., new steps, LED outside lighting, new gas stove, new welcome rugs, etc.).

     Our 50th Anniversary Celebration
          was on Saturday, Sept 30th.
