2019 Alumni Weekend Brunch

The Penn Catholic Newman Community and Collegium Institute welcome all alumni, family, and friends to join us for brunch and festivities, immediately following the Sunday Mass for alumni.

Our keynote speaker for this year’s Alumni Brunch will be Tim Reckart, an American animator and director based in Los Angeles, specializing in puppet stop motion. He is best known for his 2012 film Head over Heels, nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 2013. Most recently he was director of The Star, an animated film about the Nativity featuring Oprah Winfrey and Gina Rodriguez, which received a Golden Globe nomination, amongst other accolades.

Tour the new Newman facility and see plans for the fall expansion and hear the latest news about plans for our 125th Anniversary as the first Newman Center in the country, which will include a Newman Conference in October of 2019, co-sponsored by the Collegium Institute.

Enjoy a convivial meal, reconnect with friends, and meet the new members of the team!
