Newman Hall fetes 50 years
Berkeley's Holy Spirit/Newman Hall Parish will celebrate 50 years of ministry to students and faculty from the nearby University of California, young professionals, families and neighbors near and far from its church home at 2700 Dwight Way on Sept. 30. The celebration will begin with Mass at 5 p.m. and will be followed by food and libation, silent auction and musical entertainment.
While the community can trace its start back to the 1890s when the Paulist religious order began to minister to students at the University of California, Berkeley, campus, this milestone anniversary marks the 50th year of the parish's move to the then new Mario Ciampi building, which houses the church, rectory and parish center, in 1967.
