Did you know that Sodality is NOT FOR WOMEN & GIRLS ONLY?
Did you know that this Catholic organization was first established for young school boys in the 16th century by a Jesuit priest?
In fact, women and girls weren't admitted to Sodality until almost 200 years later!
Sodality's Marian Tweens & Teens Group is hosting a Get-Together on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 12:30 to 2:30p.m. in Rosemont A. All are invited, especially middle school girls and boys, to come out and explore with Sodality's Marian Tweens & Teens Group on TBA from 12:30 to 2:30p.m.  A light lunch will be provided.

Why is the Blessed Virgin Mary so important in your life now?  How can she help you draw closer to Jesus?  Come see, for fun and faith-sharing, food and fellowship at the next Get-Together of the Marian Tweens and Teens Group on September 21 , 2019 from 12:30p.m. to 2:30p.m. in the Rosemont Room. This is  an outreach ministry of  Our Lady of Grace Sodality.

Participants are invited to explore the connection of the Blessed Mother Mary to their real-life interests and concerns.
