Café Catholica Lite

The next Café Lite will be on Thursday, January 16th, at St. Clare of Assisi (3131 El Dorado Blvd, Houston) from 7:00-9:00 pm, with an optional prayer hour from 6:00-7:00 pm. Our speaker will be Fr. Luke Millette, Judicial Vicar for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. His topic will be “Spiritual AND Religious: Staying Connected to Christ and his Church." 

The Café Catholica program seeks to help young adults (ages 18-39) encounter Christ and his Church. All young adults are invited to join us for Café Catholica Lite throughout the year. We will gather at different locations around the archdiocese for a talk, followed by time in prayer and fellowship.

Please also save the dates for the upcoming Café Lite talks:
March 12, 2020: Our Mother of Mercy, Houston
May 28, 2020: Christ the Redeemer, Houston [DATE CHANGED]
