Get Connected – Young Adult Social
September 10 @ 11:30 am - 5:00 pm
The biggest Catholic young adult event of the year is back and you’re invited!
Spread the word that Get Connected is back for 2023 and all young adults in the Diocese of Harrisburg (yes, the whole Diocese!) aged 20 to 39 are invited to join us for an afternoon of fun, food, and fellowship. This is a great way to meet new friends and to learn about young adult groups and events in your area—wherever that area may be!
We’ll start with Sunday Mass together at 11:30am and then move across the parking lot to the pavilion for a potluck lunch and games. During lunch, we are also inviting leaders from regional Catholic young adult groups to introduce themselves and talk briefly about their groups and upcoming events so that you can get connected to other young adults in your area.
Saint Margaret Mary Catholic Church
2800 Paxton Church Rd

Mass will take place in the church. The lunch, speeches, and games will take place at the pavilion located next to the church. There is plenty of off-street parking available on-site.
