Lunch and Discussion

Every even Sunday of the month, all young adults and graduate students (ages 21-39) are invited to a lunch and discussion after the 12:30 PM Mass. Discussion topics have included one of the Gospels, the seven virtues, and currently are focused on Pope Francis’ new encyclical, Laudato Si’.

Short Retreats for the Busy Person

yags-retreatRecognizing that many young adults and graduate students lead busy lives, 1-1.5 day retreats are organized at least once a year. These provide a good opportunity to detach from the daily stresses of life and spend some time in prayer and learning more about our Catholic faith.
