Retreat Day 2021- Church on Fire Speaker

October 8, 2021

Newark Catholic students were blessed with Bart Schuchts, founder of Church on Fire, at this past week’s retreat.


Bart Schuchts has been associated with the John Paul II Healing Center since its inception. Bart has conducted over 200 life-transforming
events across the US. Bart has been in ministry across the body of Christ for over 30 years. Bart grew up in a Catholic home yet drifted away from God while in college. Following a desperate plea to God while sitting in an NFL locker room, Bart had a powerful encounter with the Father’s love that transformed his life forever.

GIVING TUESDAY…Mark your calendar!

October 4, 2021


Every day, year after year, we are inspired by the young men and women who walk through our doors. The promise and the potential we see in them call us all to make Newark Catholic High School the best it can be.


National Day of Giving is November 30.  Giving Tuesday is celebrated in the US on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to encourage acts of generosity during the holidays.

And with your help, we can ensure the excellence, longevity, and transformative power of a Newark Catholic education.


Whether you’re an alumnus, parent, parishioner, or community member, we encourage everyone to be a part of what makes us special.  Mark your calendar to make your gift to catholic education today!
