Director’s Message

My Dearest Newman Family,

     On April 23, 2016 our provincial, Fr. Mark Padrez, OP, issued a series of new assignments.  Due to a serious need in Tucson, Arizona – I have been asked to become the New Pastor/Director of the Newman Center Parish of St. Thomas More – serving the University of Arizona.  This will become effective July 1, 2016.  I will be traveling back and forth between San Diego and Tucson, assisting with the transition between both places, until late November.  I am happy to announce that Fr. Dominic DeLay, OP, will be my successor at the Newman Center here in San Diego. We hope to find an Associate Director, if possible for next year, but definitely in the future.  Fr. Dominic is in his second tour of duty at the Newman Center, as he was here from 2003-2007, before returning in 2012.  He is happy to be back at the Newman Center and I am overjoyed for this good continuity!

    In addition to myself, Julie Marner, our amazing Music Director, will also be moving on as of June 30, 2016.  We have identified Adam Vanni, who I have been in conversation with for several months, to succeed Julie.  He is an accomplished musician and skilled music director, who has served in the Diocese of San Diego for several years.  Adam will begin as Music Director on July 1, 2016.  Julie will be staying in the area and will continue her work at St. John’s Catholic Church in Encinitas and with Burundi Friends International as their Executive Director.  Julie will continue her involvement with the Catholic Community through our mutual social justice work with Burundi Friends International, which was born in our community.

     In the coming weeks and months there will be much transition in our community.  I am confident that the Newman Center is in good hands and ask for your continued support in securing its future success by your full and active participation.  Thank you for your friendship and love over the last fourteen years.  It continues to be a joy serving the Newman Community, and I ask for your prayers as Fr. Dominic and I embrace God’s new adventure for the Newman communities in San Diego and Tucson.

Respectfully Yours in Christ,

Fr. John Paul Forté, OP

Fall Retreat – 10/3/2015

By | September 15th, 2015|

You know that feeling when you don’t really know anyone, but it’s welcome week so you attend random events like “Boba Night for Sixth College or “BONDfire at La Jolla Shores.” It’s that feeling of being social and spontaneous that students get at the beginning of the year before realizing that the next few weeks of the quarter are going to be insanely busy.

Dominican Dialogue

800th-jubilee

Who is St. Dominic?

By | February 9th, 2016|

St. Dominic envisioned a life of quiet service to God. A man of high education and nobility, who was destined for a good life, separated from the conflicts and concerns of life's daily dramas. The problem was that he was gifted. His life was a light destined to proclaim good news to the poor and the liberating message of God's truth....to hearts, minds, and souls held in captivity.

Farewell from Julie

By | May 18th, 2016|

A musical note at its best is a spiritual ripple. You can’t see it or measure it, but you can feel it and act from it. Maybe it would be purple with a blaze of fire bedazzled with silver glitter if it showed itself. Hard to say really.
