Please bring a side dish or bottle of wine to share with the group. We'll end the night by saying a rosary to our Blessed Mother. All young adults are encouraged to come to this "meet and greet" for our new parish grouping.
ATTENTION YOUNG ADULTS AND FAMILIES!
The first Young Adult Potluck Brunch was such a success that another one has been planned for the Lower Room after the 9:30a.m. Mass on October 28. Please plan on stopping by for food and fellowship, even if it’s only for a little while. This will also be an opportunity to talk about future plans for the group, so bring your ideas for events that you’d like to see!
