The Latrobe Young Adult Fellowship at St. John’s Church is an active and engaged group of adults, primarily in their 20s and 30s. 

The Latrobe Young Adult Fellowship, an active and engaged group of adults primarily in their 20s and 30s, invite you to join us for a Zoom fellowship. Celebrate Easter and enjoy some interesting wines together. There will be a short guided tasting of a sparkling wine and a more free-form tasting of a rosé wine (or whatever other beverage you prefer to toast). For those who wish to participate in the guided sparkling wine tasting, we recommend Freixenet, which should be commonly available at grocery stores or wine stores for purchase. For the second bottle, participants are encouraged to try a rosé wine of their choice. We will meet online via Zoom on Wednesday, April 7, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET.

Contact the Rev. Savannah Ponder with questions or to be added to the Latrobe email list.
