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, meets twice monthly, on Thursdays for an evening of Holy Mass & spiritually formative talks, and on Saturdays for lighthearted recreation & fellowship. Past activities include movie nights, board games, presentations by priests & religious, a talk on the evils of Hollywood by ex-actor Bug Hall, a swing dance, bonfires, and more. We emphasize the beauty of the liturgy, the rosary, and our traditional roots.

Ages 18-33.

St. Thomas Aquinas

Upcoming Events

July 7 (Thursday)
Tonight we will attend 7pm Mass. Afterwards we'll gather in Padua Hall for food & socializing where pro-life activist Kevin Jorrey will speak on pro-life apologetics, which has only become all the more relevant after the overturn of Roe V. Wade, so we know how to tackle those difficult conversations when they arise. 

August 6 (Saturday)

Our young adult group will begin assembling in the narthex at 6:30pm and pray the rosary in church around 6:45pm. Shortly after 7pm in Padua Hall, Catholic content creator, Nick de La Torre, will speak on the evils of pornography, a topic that is always relevant in today's culture. Afterwards, we'll move outside for a bonfire, hot dogs, s'mores, volleyball, and other outdoor games.
