Nova Rigiditas

"Push back against the age as hard as it pushes against you." - Flannery O'Conner


In an age where Catholic values are dismissed as backward and medieval, now more than ever young Catholics must unite to bolster one another in the Faith. St. Anthony Parish's young adult group, Nova Rigiditas, meets once or twice monthly on Thursdays for an evening of Holy Mass followed by a spiritually formative talk, and/or on weekends for lighthearted recreation and fellowship. Past activities include movie nights, game nights, presentations by priests, deacons, & religious, dances, bonfires, and more. The group emphasizes the beauty of the liturgy, our traditional roots, and developing an enriched understanding of our Catholic Faith.

Ages 18-35.

For more information, please contact Caeli Rose McCutchen in the parish office at 734-854-1143.
