At Faith on Tap in Brisbane tomorrow night, Monday 11 February 2013, young adults have the chance to hear how the new Frassati movement is making a difference in the lives of young Catholics.
From the FB event page:
From Abe to Abraham
Join us at The Pineapple Hotel on Monday the 11th of February to hear Abraham Hewitt speak about his new adventures in saying yes to God’s grace! God got his attention with a $10 note and now he is a founding member of a dynamic young men’s ministry – Frassati Australia. Abraham is also a proud “sparky” (electrician) and a young man with a story of hope in challenging the view of manhood in a secular culture!
This is an ideal event to invite a friend to who is an occasional church goer or someone who has little or no faith!
I am very encouraged by the emergence of the Frassati movement as it seems to be a real work of the Holy Spirit. It is not just a programme or an event, but provides a way of life to form young Catholic men in living the faith.
The following Vision statement is found on the Frassati Ministries website:
A passion to form young men in the Catholic faith is what drives Frassati Ministries. Under the patronage of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, we aim to help young men live a sacramental life in common brotherhood and grow in their own personal relationship with Jesus. It is essential for young men to live out their Catholic faith and discover what life with Christ is really all about.
In order to form young men in the Catholic faith we look to the great witness of Bl. Pier Giorgio and seek to imitate his example. We offer Frassati Houses for young men to live together in common brotherhood and be supported in living a sacramental, prayerful, and charitable life. We hope to encourage young men to adopt a devotion to the Eucharist and Our Lady as Pier Giorgio did and to help men discover their identity through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Frassati Ministries aims to promote Pier Giorgio Frassati’s cause for canonization and seeks to further his apostalate.
Curious? Young adults are invited to come on Monday night to find out more.
