Young adults invited to diocesan Mass with Bishop Matano

All young adults in the Diocese of Rochester are invited to an evening featuring Mass and fellowship ahead of National Vocations Awareness Week.

The evening, titled “Be a Witness,” will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3, at Sacred Heart Cathedral, 296 Flower City Park, Rochester. Mass will be celebrated by Bishop Salvatore R. Matano, with Father Peter Van Lieshout, rector of Sacred Heart Cathedral, serving as homilist.

The evening also will include eucharistic adoration, food trucks, games and fellowship.

The evening is to help young adults “ponder how to witness to the Christ we receive in the Eucharist while living out one’s vocation,” according to Mark Capellazzi, project coordinator for youth and young-adult ministry for the Diocese of Rochester.

Young adults with children are welcome to attend. Those interested in attending are asked to register in advance. For more information and to register, visit
