Newman Households are created for communities of faith to grow in mind, body and spirit through mutual support and accountability. Through the relationships in the home, individuals are transformed and develop their capacity to be an evangelizing presence in the University, Catholic Church and the world.
The households program is based on the Apostle's community in Acts:
“All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer. A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity- all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.” Acts 2:42-47
