New to Philadelphia


Hi everybody,

My wife and I are new to the Philadelphia area and are looking for an active group or parish for a young married couple. I am a 25 year old lawyer and my wife is a 24 year old musical theater performer, and we are looking for other young, professional catholics in the area. Any advice for parishes or young adult groups that we should look into? Thanks for the help.



Catholic Underground at the Cathedral is worth checking out, as is Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Overbrook, staffed by the O.deM (Mercedarians) (also take a tour of the seminary down the street at some point).
