What we're about

The West Hartford Catholic Young Adults (aka Crossfire) is a group of for those in their 20s and 30s focused on faith, fellowship, and community service. We meet at and are run through St. Thomas the Apostle Church but you do not need to be a parishioner or even Catholic to participate in our events. No matter where you are in your faith journey, all are welcome and we'd love to have you.

We host variety of social events, service projects and a weekly bible study on Tuesdays. Maybe the last time you participated in something like this was Catholic school or CCD, maybe you've never studied the Bible at all ... all good! We simply dissect the coming weekend's Gospel, led by a rotation of group members, and follow with a friendly and faith-filled discussion.

We're a mix of 40ish active members --- Many of us just dropped in one day after moving from out-of-state for a new job looking for faith formation and friendship. We always have something in the works and would love to meet you.

((Just a note: we're on Meetup to reach new people, however, the majority of our members are not active on this site.

Young Adult Bible Study

St. Thomas The Apostle

Please join us for a Bible Study discussion at 7:30p at St. Thomas The Apostle Rectory (building to the left of the church if you are facing it from Farmington Ave, look for a red door). There are typically 12-20 people in attendance (most of our group is not on Meetup, but this is how we reach new people like you!) When you arrive at the rectory, just ring the doorbell and someone will greet you and welcome you in. How it works: We rotate as peers researching the upcoming Gospel that is read on Sunday. The first portion is spent reading the Gospel as a group, then the leader will present some history and thematics around what they found in their research, and the final portion is discussion-based, where we seek to understand how we can live out Christ's message in our daily lives. No matter where you are in your faith journey, we'd love for you to join our group. You don't need to bring anything, we provide materials for you to read along, though some people bring their own bible for personal preference. Looking forward to meeting you.

Evensong At St. Thomas The Apostle

St. Thomas The Apostle

What is it? Evensong, sung Evening Prayer in the English Christian tradition, is roughly the equivalent of Vespers in Roman Catholicism. Evensong was first constructed in the 16th century by combining the Roman Catholic liturgies of Vespers and Compline (evening prayers). This beautiful non-Eucharistic liturgy brings together people of all faiths (all are welcome) in celebration with beautiful singing and scripture reading. First time? RSVP and we can put you in touch with someone to look out for you! More information on their FB page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1782111635137581/
