Taking Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati as their patron, the Young Dads’ Group draws inspiration from one of his famous quotes, “Verso l’alto” or “To the heights”, which is interpreted as a motivating call to strive for sanctity amid the joys and difficulties of fatherhood.
Under the guidance of Fr Sofatzis, the Holy Name Young Dads’ Group meets once a month at the Uraidla Hotel. Originally beginning as an opportunity for a few of the young fathers to come together to read St Augustine’s Confessions, the Young Dads’ Group has now become an opportunity to grow in Faith with other men, blending together philosophy, theology, great company and delicious beer.
All young fathers under 40 are welcome to attend.
If you would like to join, please contact Fr Sofatzis or David Freer.
The Young Mothers’ Rosary Group meets on the first Friday of the month from 10:00am-12:00pm. The aim of the group is to provide an opportunity where young mothers can spend some time with one another, share a meal, and pray together. There is a recitation of the Rosary at 10:30am. Young mothers are encouraged to bring a plate of food to share and are welcome to bring along their children.
