Latrobe Fellowship – Wine Tasting

September 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

It’s our first First Wednesday of the program year! The young adults of the parish are invited to join the Latrobe Fellowship for a wine tasting hosted by our rector and resident sommelier, the Rev. Luis Leon. Since the renovations to the parish house are beginning this fall, we will gather for our First Wednesday services and programs at the Church of the Ascension and St. Agnes. The evening will begin at 7 p.m. with a service of the Holy Eucharist followed by the wine tasting (non-alcoholic beverages will also be available). The suggested donation is $10.
For more information, please contact the Rev. Andy Olivo at andrew.olivo@stjohns-dc.org. You can RSVP to the wine tasting here. Invite a friend and join us as we kick off the new year. All are welcome!
