Upcoming Events


LUMEN is a program of Frassati Young Adults. The mission of Lumen is to help every young adult in the greater Seattle area come to know the Light of Christ by illuminating their hearts and minds through catechesis, building a community grounded in faith, and helping them become better evangelists of the Truth.


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:
