The Frassati Society of Young Adult Catholics (or Frassati for short) is a fellowship of young adults who desire to live a life of holiness, in imitation of Our Lord Jesus Christ, within our modern era. Located in central Indiana as part of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish, Frassati is composed of men, women, religious brothers and sisters, and priests.

Frassati23We accomplish our dynamic ministry through several, weekly-meeting cell groups: focused communities of up to 16 members. Our society grows as each cell group invites and welcomes new members, then divides once the group begins to overflow—similar to our human cells. In this way, the interconnected cells can live the New Evangelization as Pope Benedict XVI defined it: “New evangelization must surrender to the mystery of the grain of mustard seed and not be so pretentious as to believe to immediately produce a large tree.”

Frassati members commit to imitating the life of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. Taking to heart his words, “The higher we go, the better we shall hear the voice of Christ,” our ministry encourages prayer, study, and lively engagement with others and with the Church. Through this, we find and become the light of Christ.

If you are college-age, or in your 20s or 30s, we welcome you to join a communio group and to attend Frassati Society events. (You do not have to join a cell group in order to attend events!)

Occasionally we will hold events in the St. JPII Youth Center.  Here is a map of our campus pointing out the Youth Center if you’re unfamiliar:
