Transcript Jay Aeal and Mary Fowler show Christmas spirit. Newman photo. Finishing touches are by Diane and Tran. Newman photo. NEWMAN'S Support, Guidance, Comfort People helping people. Perhaps the phrase is overused, but it provides an excellent description of the Newman Student Association. Though most of their work is by, with, and for students on campus, they do reach out several times each year to other NSAs, high school students, and one area parish. They participate in events for fun and for help, leaving behind an impression of caring individuals. Community service centers around Our Lady of Guadelupe Church and school. Members participated in fundraisers to support their cause. A major fundraiser was selling football programs at the Astrodome. "We made good money there," said NSA President Mary Fowler. Spiritual retreats offered members a way to get away from it all and get in touch with God. "They were way out in the boonies. It was great/' said Fowler, "You could really have a chance to just be alone and have a spiritual experience." Also offered were workshop type ses sions that provided religious guidance. Another kind of guidance was offered to area high school students. Several Catholic Youth Organizations were invited to campus for a tour. The transition from high school to college being difficult, prospective students were offered the NSA as a sort of haven. "When they know we're here, they know they have a place to go if they feel kind of lost," said Fowler. Social life was not forgotten by NSA members. Picnics, dances, movies, and softball were among the events sponsored by the NSA. They also had a house warming project so that other churches could visit them. The atmosphere among NSA members was warm and friendly. The attitude was attentive and helpful. Above all the NSA was a caring, sharing group. ► Mona Arnold 120 ■ Organizations
