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. Our young adult group, Nova Rigiditas, once a month on Thursdays for an evening of Holy Mass & spiritually formative talks, and on weekends for lighthearted recreation & fellowship. Past activities include movie nights, board games, presentations by priests, deacons, & religious, a talk on the evils of Hollywood by ex-actor Bug Hall, dances, bonfires, and more.
We emphasize the beauty of the liturgy, the rosary, and our traditional roots.

Ages 18-35.

Coordinator: Caeli Rose McCutchen
