In the spirit of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, join us as we enjoy fellowship and worship Christ together outdoors through our monthly hike. Once we reach our destination on our hike, we have Mass (and sometimes reconciliation) - thats right, mass outdoors at the top of a mountain. For our upcoming hikes, check out our facebook page.

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

  • Books and Beers: Philosophy and pints

  • Letters of the Popes

Explore different areas of your faith and continue your faith journey with a small group today! Email for more info or to join!  


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.

We will not have a Fall 2019 retreat this year, but look out for our Spring Retreat!

Frassati Council 

The Frassati program is governed by a council which helps to plan events and retreats, as well as decide the direction for the program to go. They are very friendly people, so feel free to introduce yourself if you see them! If you have ideas for events or programs that you would like to see, we would love to hear about them! Email them to
