A new group for young adults has formed in Charlotte called Juventutem (Latin for youth. Pronounced Yoo-ven-too-tem). It’s open to ages 18-35 and they seek sanctification through the traditional charisms of the Church, especially through a devotion to the Traditional Latin Mass. Juventutem is an international group and takes its name from the prayer at the beginning of each Latin Mass:
Introíbo ad altáre Dei. / Ad Deum, qui lætíficat iuventútem meam. (“I will go in to the altar of God. / To God, who giveth joy to my youth”)
The mission of Juventutem is to strengthen the faith among young adults through fellowship, spiritual growth and faithful catechesis. All young adults welcome – especially those new or unfamiliar to the Latin Mass.
Come join them at their next event:
Tour of St. Joseph College Seminary
Saturday November 6, 11am
St. Joseph College Seminary
22 Arctus Ave, Mt Holly, NC 28120
Tour Guide: Seminarian Bradley Loftin
The St. Jospeh College Seminary is a sacred space that evokes the presence of God in its buildings and in the details in and around the seminary itself. As Father Kauth, the rector of the Seminary, put it, “The building, the structure — beautiful as it is — is attempting in its nobility and strength to be an image of that: a reminder of what we are supposed to become as men of virtue.”
Come see where the formation of good and holy priests begin!
Please park along the driveway.~
