Frassati Society (Young Adults)

p_frassatilogoThe Frassati Society of Young Adult Catholics was created in 1996 as a fellowship and community service group for 18-35 year-olds in the Lafayette Diocese and is based on the life and teachings of the Blessed Pier Georgio Frassati. Frassati, who died at the age of 24 in 1925 in Turin, Italy, led a life of quiet and discreet devotion to the poor.

The Society provides young adults with the opportunity to learn more about their Catholic faith and share that faith with others. The group has many active members and an Executive Board who guides the activities of the group. Frassati Society groups have been initiated in many other cities and states, often times with guidance from the founding Lafayette Diocese group.

We have small cell groups that meet weekly.  All cell groups meet together once a month for Rosary at 6:30 pm, Mass at 7 pm and fellowship after.  Above is a list of upcoming events.

About Our Patron

Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati - The Man of the Beatitudes

p_frassatipierPier Giorgio Frassati was born in Turin, Italy on 6 April 1901. From his early years, he demonstrated a special love for God through prayer and service of the poor. An average student but outstanding athlete, he made many friends in high school and university. He was an active member of several Catholic organizations which ministered to the poor, promoted Eucharistic adoration and Marian devotion, and defended chastity. His strong political views led him to join movements which challenged society in its struggle about Christian values.

Although he was the son of a rich and politically influential family, Pier Giorgio mingled with all classes of people, spent his money on the needy, and regularly visited the sick. During one of these visits he contracted polio and died within a few days, on 4 July 1925, at the age of twenty-four.

He was beatified by Pope John Paul II on 20 May 1990 and gave him the title, "Man of the Eight Beatitudes." He is currently a candidate for canonization by the Catholic Church.

"By his example he proclaims that a life lived in Christ's Spirit, the Spirit of the Beatitudes, is 'blessed', and that only the person who becomes a 'man or woman of the Beatitudes' can succeed in communicating love and peace to others. He repeats that it is really worth giving up everything to serve the Lord. He testifies that holiness is possible for everyone, and that only the revolution of charity can enkindle the hope of a better future in the hearts of people." ~John Paul II, Rome, 20 May 1990
