Join Latrobe for our first monthly Wednesday gathering of the program year. We’ll begin with a short Eucharist in the church followed by fellowship together. It’s a time to welcome new Associate Rector Shawn Evelyn, check in about our summers, and brainstorm ideas for the fall. Food and drink will be provided for those who feel comfortable partaking. Good conversation is guaranteed! The Latrobe Young Adult Fellowship at St. John’s Church is an active and engaged group of adults, primarily in their 20s and 30s.
