All former Collegians and their partners are invited join us for one of the four lunches planned to celebrate our Centenary. The invitees will be separated into the various cohorts based (loosely) on who was the incumbent Rector at the year of their entrance into Newman College. Prior to the lunch there will be a Mass, and following the lunch there will be an archival display and a concert. The proceeds from the lunches will be directed to Jesuit Mission, Jesuit Refugee Services, Jesuit Social Services, and two institutions established by former Collegians: Peace and Diversity, Australia, and the School of St Jude in Tanzania.
