Quid Volo Young Adults: First Fridays

First Fridays @ 7pm: June 7, July 5, etc.

Saint Peter Church, 27551 Volo Village Road, Volo


This group will allow young adults to make time for prayer, reflection, discussion and socialization. In our busy lives and schedules, it is so easy to forget to make time for our ultimate goal, which is to get ourselves and as many other souls to Heaven by building solid Catholic friendships. That is the first and foremost purpose of creating and attending this group. The second purpose is to properly form the young people in their faith, so they are able to go out and evangelize, teach and pass on the Catholic faith.

The QVYADG meets on the first Friday of each month in the school following the 7PM First Friday Mass & Devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

For more information contact Pierre & Maria Lareau at 847-791-1246 or go to stpetervolo.org/quid-volo-young-adult-group
