Come one, come all for free food! Come at 5:30pm to our Ash Ave. parking lot and enjoy food and meeting other new students. 

We will be done in time for 7pm mass so you can attend with all your new friends you meet at the cookout. 

This will also feature live music from our very one, Come Awake Band. There will be a vegetarian option available.

An ice cream social follows Mass. Contact for more info.
