More details some young adult events for 2017

University & Young Adult Mass
is held each Sunday evening at 7pm during the school year.  We do take off a couple of weeks over the Christmas break to be sure to check the calendar.  Young adults (including students) take the lead for all liturgical roles (choir, readers, Eucharistic ministers, greeters, etc).  Sign-ups are passed around each week so folks can sign up to help out for the next week.  Hospitality (cookies, chips, hot chocolate,etc) is present after each Mass.

God and Pizza – after the 7pm Mass
is held monthly after the 7pm Sunday Mass and gives the young adult community a chance to come together, have some pizza, and talk faith.  Usually the priest/presider of the Mass joins us.  This is usually held in the 3rd floor lounge.  Enter behind the altar area after Mass and head upstairs.

Supper Table Cooking –  4:30-6:30pm
