Night Out

What: 

A night out with area young adults in a relaxed atmosphere with dinner, drinks, and a talk from a fantastic young priest, with Q&A on the Lenten themes of prayer, forgiveness, and simple ways to incorporate faith into every day life.

Who:

A Frassati Night Out is for any young adult (18-39 yrs) interested in matters of Faith, Reason, and the True, the Good & the Beautiful.  Capital Region Frassati Chapter is a fellowship of Catholic young adults, but our Night Out events are a great opportunity for non-Catholics, lapsed Catholics, and anyone curious about deeper questions of meaning to socialize or simply come listen to an interesting talk.  We welcome all.

  • Away from the Church? – Come rediscover it.
  • Love Jesus but wary of organized religion? – Come see why He established a Church.
  • Skeptical of Catholicism? – Come and meet people who are living it out joyfully.
  • Seeking fulfillment beyond the daily grind? – Come encounter a new lens on the meaning of life.

Where:

Brown’s Brewing Company: 417 River, Street, Troy, 12180.  There’s parking available on the street, along the river, and in either side lot after 5:00pm.  We will be upstairs in the Hudson Room.

When:

Wednesday, March 14, 2018.  Happy Hour starts at 7:00.  Featured talk by Fr. Francis Vivacqua, “The Three Crosses–The Center of Our Life”, a Lenten reflection inspired by the writings of Venerable Fulton Sheen, at 8:00pm.  Q&A / wrap-up 9:30pm/10:00pm.

Why:

Because young adults, regardless of their faith background, often in a transient state of life, desire connection and community, but often find it difficult to encounter depth, friendship, and meaning amidst our frenzied schedules and the world’s messages of what matters most in life.

Because practicing Catholic young adults often struggle to find and meet each other in a parish context where families and other groups may seem better “plugged-in,” while the college-age to mid-30’s age bracket might slip through the cracks.

Because all of us, regardless of faith (or no faith) background have a deep-seated desire for purpose and love.
