"For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them." (Matthew 18:20)
Welcome to Catholic In Real Life, the place for 30s and 40s Roman Catholics (married, single, divorced, with or without kids) living in Upper Westchester County and Putnam County, New York.
We started CiRL to answer the need for a faith-based, local community group because we hadn't found an established group that was geared toward our age range. We (the organizers) are parishioners of Church of the Holy Spirit in Cortlandt Manor (pastor: Fr. John DeBellis). While Holy Spirit is our home base, we serve and have members from various area parishes.
Join us on our journey to explore what it means to practice our faith beyond Sunday mass--in short, to become Catholic in Real Life!
Are you asleep in your faith? Well, "Awake from your slumber! Arise from your sleep!"
Are you, like us, looking to deepen your faith and grow as a Catholic in Real Life? Then this is the place for you! We only ask 2 things of members:
1) Engage: come to events, provide feedback on the events you attend, and send us suggestions.
2) Respond: give a yes or no RSVP to each and every event posted in our calendar – this helps us gauge interest in meet-ups.
