0 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana October 2, 1987 'A space apart' UE Newman Center is place for students, staff to come home to By MARY T. ELLERT Message Staff Writer First in a series on campus ministry There's a sign hanging on the wall in Sister Sharon Bittner's office at the University of Evansville Newman Center. It reads: "No matter what, no matter where, it's always home if love is them." That's exactly what the Newman Center is for many UE students and staff members -- a home. Sister Bittner, who is begin- ning her second year as Newman director, said she has been "letting people know that we are a welcoming place. We are here to listen." She has many activities planned for the new school year, including a noon Mass every Sunday at nearby St. Benedict Church, a bible study group and a half-hour radio spot onthe campus radio sta- tion once a month. Sister Bittner said she realizes the pressures put on college students today. They are confronted and challenged by people who may have dif- ferent lifestyles, morality and views of life.

"I hope we're here to help them as a resource -- a space apart from things to think, discuss and fill out the gaps in information which are always there. ' ' Sister Bittner is particularly pleased with the success of the noon Masses at St. Benedict Church which is just five blocks away from the Newman Center. "The people of that parish have been very welcoming, and we're enjoying beginning a working relationship with them in planning the liturgy," she explained. One of the highlights of the Mass is the performance of the "vibrant" music group, led by liturgist Karen Eberhart. Besides offering oppor- tunities for prayer and liturgy, the Newman Center also offers opportunities for service. Sister Bittner rattled off a list of local social service agencies -- rang- ing from Patchwork Central to the community soup kitchen -- in which UE students and staff mem'ers can volunteer.
