Chestnut organizes opportunities to serve the under privileged members of our community. Past activities have included providing meals for homeless families, visiting the sick and infirm, and preparing care packages for the homeless.
College and Young Professional Night
Wednesday Nights for College & Young Professionals are geared towards fostering the spiritual and personal growth of college and young professional women. Usually, this is a spiritual meditation (a period of 30 minutes of guided mental prayer in our chapel), a Recollection, or a class on some aspect of Catholic doctrine. A priest is always available for confession afterwards. The evening ends with a fun get together too :)
Evening of Recollection
Second Wednesdays of the Month
A Recollection is a time to pray and reflect on one's hopes and ambitions. There is a priest who gives talks on specific virtues and the college and young professional women have a chance to go for confession or spiritual direction.
