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!!
I Believe: Exploring the Creed
Frassati Grad/YA Spring Retreat, May 1-3
Every Sunday, we mutter the same words: “ I believe in one, holy, catholic, apostolic church. I believe….” but do you know what they mean? The Nicene Creed has deep historical and theological roots, and ties us into the body of our Church. Join us as we look at the end of the Creed and its significance for our daily lives as we witness to Jesus Christ and protect the living tradition of our Catholic faith. The weekend will feature as our speaker Fr. John Marie Bingham OP, pastor of Blessed Sacrament Church, who will guide us through not only what we say, but why we say it, and how beautiful our faith really is. The retreat will take place at Warm Beach Camp in Stanwood, WA. Cost is $85, which will cover two nights of lodging and 5 meals. Registration can be found here.
Please note that we prefer our retreat attendees to be between the ages of 21 and 35. If this is a problem, please contact Mikaela at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
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 following year are:
- April 12
- May 3
- June 7
Frassati Small Groups are a great way for young adults 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
- Salt of the Earth: A group learning about Catholic social teaching
- Feminists and Lemon Twists: A group open to men and women alike about women and the church
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!

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!
