5 Myths of the Catholic Church

Veritas Undergraduate Ministry and Frassati Graduate Students and Young Adults came together last night to cohost a talk by Carl Olson, editor of the Catholic World Report. Carl may be from Eugene, but the Catholic Huskies had a good time listening to his journey to becoming Catholic, and learning how to discuss our faith with those who may be skeptical. A big thanks to Carl for speaking for us! 


Young Adult Christmas Formal


The 2nd annual young adult Christmas formal was a definitely a merry and bright night! Everyone dressed to the nines, and looked quite dapper. The evening featured two live bands, the first a string trio playing classical Christmas songs, and the second was a jazz band for swing dancing! We had around 175 young adults attend, and we partied on until midnight! If you missed the formal, but still want an opportunity to meet other undergrads, don't stress! You can come to U-District Young Adult Mass, followed by dinner, on January 4, 5:45PM at Blessed Sacrament; or you can come to Saturday Night Alive on January 17 (more info here).

Holiday Cheer at A Very Newman Christmas!

On Friday, Dec. 5th, the Newman Center held its annual Christmas Party, prepared and hosted by the Fellowship team! The Center was decked out in holiday cheer and was the perfect environment for an evening of fun. About 75 students attended, many of them donning their tackiest Christmas attire!

After enjoying a scrumptious ham dinner, party attendees participated in a "gingerbread" (graham crackers) house building competition. They built in teams of 6-8, with the winner taking home the grand prize of... candy!

Selected by popular vote, the winner of the competition was this impressive creation, the “Polar Express.” 

Another friendly competition involved voting for the “Ugliest Sweater.” We had some great contenders, can you guess who won?

We are so glad that so many came out to this event! Not only was it a great time, it provided some respite from the stress of studying for finals! 

Thank you to the Fellowship team and all volunteers for your preparation of this event!

This was our last undergrad event of the year, we're excited to see what next quarter brings!
