Juventutem Classes

Juventutem Charlotte is a new young adults group centered around the Traditional Latin Mass. The name, Juventutem, is 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.
