St. Rose of Lima Young Adults

December 2014 Newsletter

Who We Are

The Saint Rose of Lima Young Adult Community is a community of men and women both single and married in their 20s and 30s. Our group provides an outlet for like-minded Catholics to recommit or deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith, while at the same time providing opportunities for socialization and community service. Although the group is sponsored by Saint Rose of Lima, we welcome young adult Catholics from all parishes in the Camden Diocese.
Advent Resources

During the four weeks of Advent, we prepare for the celebration of Christ’s birth through prayer and reflection. Check out the Ignatian Spirituality link for contemplation and reflective prayer to encourage us in the season of Advent.
