Upcoming Events

Retreats

Frassati hosts quarterly retreats for graduates and young professionals! Each retreat focuses on a different spiritual and/or intellectual aspect of our faith, but they all offer a great opportunity to meet other Catholic young adults and spend time in fellowship and prayer. Retreats are typically Friday night-Sunday afternoon, and are held at various retreat centers in WA.

Young Adult Mass

Frassati Grad/YA along with the Blessed Sacrament Young Adults co-host a monthly young adult Mass, followed by dinner and fellowship. The Mass takes place at 5:45PM on the first Sunday of every month, and the social is afterwards in the parish hall. Dates for the upcoming academic year are:

  • 2017: January 8, March 5, April 2, May 7, June 4, July 2, August 6. September 3, October 1, November 5, December 3

Small Groups

Frassati Small Groups are a great way for young professionals and post grads from 21 to 35 to build a closer, more tight knit community centered around the Catholic faith and common life experiences. Our current small groups are:

  • Men's Groups
  • Women's Groups
  • Bible and Catechism Study
  • Letters of the Popes: Reading and discussing encyclicals over dessert and coffee
  • Books and Beers: Philosophy and pints
