.- Classes began nearly one month ago, but Catholic Rush Week is just getting under way at Oregon State University’s Newman Center this week. A number of activities have been planned to help students get to know the staff and services offered there, starting today with an open house featuring banana splits and tours of the center led by peer ministers.

Students, faculty and staff are invited to the weekly Newman Bible study, starting tomorrow, led by Deacon Chris Anderson.

A weekly mass on Wednesday will begin at 12:10 p.m. in the Newman Center's Chapel, and a simple supper is offered at 6 p.m. Students sign up to cook and guests donate $2 for their meal.

Thursday, staff will break into the "Stupid Catholic Questions" box and invite students to participate in a night of discussion and catechesis.

A free barbecue will be served Friday. The week will conclude with Sunday mass at St. Mary's Catholic Church, during which Fr. John Henderson will ask a special blessing on the campus ministry for the new school year.
