Looking Back to 1966: NIU's Newman Center Receive Parochial Status

From the December 14, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

1966, 50 Years Ago.

"After 25 years of service to the Northern Illinois University community the Newman Center, 512 Normal Road, has received parochial status, effective December 11.

"The Chancery of Catholic Diocese of Rockford announced the establishment of the university parish of Christ the Teacher."

Kind of important to Liz and myself as we were married there in 1973.
