Frassati Graduate Students and Young Adults

The Newman Center experience doesn’t just end with graduation! Join the Frassati Graduate Student & Young Adult group to keep your faith growing! 

The Frassati Group runs programs made just for graduate students, recently graduated, and young working professionals - programs ranging from small groups and lectures to social events and retreats. It’s a great way to stay connected to a faith community, make close friends, grow in faith, and have fun!!

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:

  • 2015: September 6, October 4, November 1, December 6
  • 2016: January 3, February 7, March 6, April 3, May 1, June 5, July 3, August 7

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 Study
  • Letters of the Popes: A teaching small group
  • Books and Beers: Philosophy and pints

Saturday Night Alive

Saturday Night Alive is a monthly event for all young adults in the greater Seattle Area. Spend an hour in Eucharistic Adoration followed by a social hour (sometimes with live music!). And for the 21+ crowd, an after party at Murphy’s Pub in Wallingford.

Pencil in the dates for the rest of the year, and we hope to see you there!
