Announcing the Launch of Our New Young Adult Group

With the blessings of His Grace, we are thrilled to announce the launch of a new young adult group within our diocese! This initiative aims to foster community and fellowship among young adults across our diocese through monthly activities. It’s a wonderful opportunity for participants to share their journeys, connect with peers, and explore our beautiful diocese together.

Monthly Activities & Vespers Visits Each event is designed to be casual and focused on fellowship. After each gathering, we'll have the chance to visit different parishes for Vespers, making each meeting not only a time for fun and relaxation but also spiritual enrichment. Moreover, by rotating locations, we hope to accommodate young adults from various areas, ensuring that everyone can join in.

Summer Plans Here’s what we have lined up for this summer:

·       May 18th: Join us for a hike at Pawtuckaway Mt. We meet at the North Mountain Trail in Pawtuckaway State Park, NH, at noon. Following the hike, participants may head to St. Nicholas in Salem, MA, for Vespers at 6 PM.

·       June 15th: Our adventure continues with a hike at Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden, CT. We start at 200 Mount Carmel Ave, Hamden, CT 06518 at noon, with Vespers to follow at Sts. Peter and Paul.

·       Potential July 13th Event: We're planning a relaxed beach day at Charleston Beach, RI. Spend the day by the sea, and around 5 PM, we may journey together to St. Nicholas in Norwich for Vespers.

Stay Connected To keep updated and connect with fellow group members, join our group chat: Diocese Young Adults Group Chat.

Leadership His Grace has appointed Dimitrios Rentel as the coordinator of this vibrant group, under the guidance of Fr. Moses Locke, the Director of Diocesan Youth & Young Adult Ministry, and Assistant Director Ephraim Mosher.

We invite all our young adults to join these gatherings. Let us pray that this group blossoms into a robust network that not only supports each member but also enriches our diocese. Your participation and prayers are greatly valued as we embark on this exciting journey together!
