December Frassati Events

Friday, December 1st: St. Patrick’s Parish Scripture Study
7pm in Aquinas Hall

I am pleased to announce that we will be beginning a new St. Patrick’s Parish Scripture Study on Friday, December 1st, in Aquinas Hall. All are most welcome and are encouraged to invite a friend.

We will be following Scott Hahn’s course, The Bible and the Sacraments: A Journey Through Scripture, but we will be beginning with a 3-part intro on where the Catholic bible came from and how to read and interpret scripture according to the principles given to us by the Church Fathers and the Church’s Magisterium.

Future meetings will be held on the first Thursday of every month.

Refreshments will be served.

Friday, December 8th Dinner after 6:30pm Mass (Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception):
We’ll attend Mass at St. Patrick before gathering at Acre in Clintonville (2700 North High Street, Columbus, OH 43202) for dinner.  Meet up outside the church entrance on Grant Ave. before we drive over, or catch up with us at the restaurant.  We’d love to see you at Acre around 7:45pm for dinner even if you are planning on attending a different Mass!
