2022 Summer Events

These nights are for young adults who have graduated high school and college-aged adults.  For a summer program for high school students, please see Teen Discipleship.

2022 Dates:

  • June 22
  • June 29
  • July 6

Last year, we began each evening with Mass at the Newman Center (421 W St Marie St, Duluth) at 5:00 pm with a BBQ and a talk by a speaker to follow. Next we move on to a fierce game of speedball (a great game combining the best of soccer and football) down at Park Point, and we close out the evening at the Dairy Queen in Canal Park. 

This event is for college students and other 18+ young adults (who graduated high school the prior summer or within the last 5 years).  For a similar event for high school students and recent grads, please click here for Teen Discipleship.

“The desire to see Jesus dwells deep in the heart of each man and each woman. My dear young people, allow Jesus to gaze into your eyes so that the desire to see the Light, and to experience the splendor of the Truth, may grow within you. Whether we are aware of it or not, God has created us because he loves us and so that we in turn may love him. This is the reason for the unquenchable nostalgia for God that man preserves in his heart: “Your face, Lord, do I seek. Do not hide your face from me” (Ps 27: 8-9). That Face - we know - was revealed to us by God in Jesus Christ”
–John Paul II, Message for the 19th World Youth Day
