Catholic Young Adults to Gather in St. Louis Next Week

I am happy to pass along this announcement from Juventutem Michigan, which is spearheading a dinner and fellowship event next Monday evening to mark the ICRSS priestly ordinations that will draw many young Catholics from around the country. I know that the local ICRSS Sursum Corda young adult group will have a strong presence there.

There will be a gathering immediately after the Solemn High Mass on Monday at 6:00 pm (ordination eve), where members of the Institute will receive their choir habits. The restaurant is nearby to the Oratory.


Details from Juventutem:

On Monday evening, August 4th, young adults (18-35) and clerics who appreciate the Traditional Latin Mass are invited to gather at 8:00 p.m. at Hodak's Restaurant & Bar, 2100 Gravois Ave, St. Louis 63104.

Hodak's is located a half-mile from the Oratory of St. Francis de Sales, and this social gathering is scheduled so as to follow the 6:00 p.m. Solemn High Mass that Msgr. Wach will celebrate at the Oratory on Monday night.

The social is being organized by members of the Fœderatio Internationalis Juventutem - an international apostolate of young adults who work for the sanctification of youth by means of the Traditional Latin Mass and other Roman traditions of the faith - who are visiting St. Louis to attend the ordinations on August 5th.

We hope that this gathering will bring together young adult Oratory parishioners (who may be members of Sursum Corda St. Louis), other St. Louis young adults, and visiting traditionalists from around the country. Leaders of other American Juventutem chapters will be present and would be glad to encourage and answer any questions of any St. Louis young adult who might seek to establish a Juventutem chapter in that archdiocese.


Further info from Sursum Corda:

If significant interest manifests itself by noon this Friday - e.g., 40 "yeses" - we will seek to reserve the restaurant's upper room to share a $16/head chicken buffet dinner. Otherwise, we'll be more or less be seated together on the main floor.
