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, and more. We emphasize the beauty of the liturgy, the rosary, and our traditional roots.

The Culture of Death will not be overcome unless a Culture of Catholicism rises to engage it in the fight, for in many ways it is young Catholics who will determine the future of the Church.

Ages 18-33.

Young adults are welcome to join us for 6:30pm rosary and 7pm Mass, followed by pizza and fellowship in Padua Hall while Fr. Slaton dives into the theology of the sacrament of marriage. Please bring your choice of snack. As it will be a few days before the feast of St. Valentine, you are welcome to buy or bake appropriately themed sweets.

Recreation Night
At 6:30pm, we'll gather in one of the schoolrooms to watch Disney's Mandalorian, a tradition that started with the inception of our group. Meatless snacks will be provided for the occasion, among them nacho platters and other finger foods. Please ask what snack you should bring!
