The Frassati Society of Lincoln, a group for Young Adults in the Diocese of Lincoln (ages 22-40 welcome), engages in social, spiritual and service activities, including monthly 'Third Thursday Adoration' at John XXIII Center, 3700 Sheridan Blvd., Lincoln.
Named after Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati was a handsome, fun-loving, athletic, courageous and devout Catholic born on April 6, 1901, in Turin, Italy from a prominent Italian family. He died at the young age of 24 on July 4, 1925 and has since become a model for lay people all over the world. Beatified in 1990 by Pope John Paul II and named "The Man of the Eight Beatitudes." His feast day is celebrated on the Fourth of July!
Pier Giorgio teaches us that holiness is for everyone.
