October 6th


Fri, Oct 6th, 2017
7:00 -11:00 PM 
We're all about bringing people together to hang out and show off our lederhosen.
We're pretty sure that one of the best ways to do that is beer, German food, live music and having the place all to ourselves.
Where: Frankford Hall
When: October 6th, 2017
Time: 7-11pm
Who: You and your friends who are older than 21.
$25 gets you food and beer until the keg(s) runs out.
We have to limit space so register soon!

October 8th

Queen Takeover

Sun, Oct 8th, 2017
6:30 PM 
When you need something done, you ask someone who gives a bold yes. Mary's yes led to Jesus, the one who ultimately satisfies our desires.
And that’s why we’re asking Mary to takeover.
Archbishop Chaput will dedicate the youth & young adults in Philadelphia to Mary, a woman whose courage changed the world.
Those who ask, receive - and we’re asking for it all. The Queen Takeover will be a Mass like we know it, but with a little extra hustle.
Because when you need something done right, you ask Mary.
Where: Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter & Paul - 18th Street & Benjamin Franklin Parkway
When: Sunday October 8th, 2017
Time: Mass begins at 6:30pm
Who: You & your friends, plus Ike Ndolo & Bobby Hill.


August 11th -13th


St. Mary's of Providence Center
227 Isabella Road
Elverson, Pennsylvania 19520
What does it mean to be human? What is this ache in our hearts for connection, for relationship, that even the good things of the world can't seem to totally satisfy? This journey begins and ends with the gift and mystery of our creation as male and female and our encounter with God the world, and other people. Come and awaken the wonder and mystery of being human!

June 2nd-4th

Monastic Experience Weekends

St. Mary's Monastery
271 North Main St.
P.O. Box 345
Petersham, MA 01366
Designed for single Catholic men aged 18-40, to help those who are seeking to understand a possible call from God to serve him more fully, to experience directly the simplicity, richness and challenges of monastic life. Those attending will stay, share and speak: stay in the monastery (space permitting); share in the monks’ daily balance of prayer, work and study; speak with those who have been called to this contemplative vocation – a life radically centered on Christ. If you would like more information please contact Father Gregory at or call him at 978–724–3350.
