The annual Top of the Town event is a great opportunity for Young Members to gather for food, fellowship and a lovely view of Washington.
We will hear remarks from Ray McKenna, President of Catholic Athletes for Christ and long-time member of the Society.
Additionally, in support of the Archdiocese's "Walk with Francis" campaign, which calls on groups and individuals to perform corporal works of mercy for those less fortunate as part of the Holy Father's visit, we will be collecting socks for men, women and children which Catholic Charities will distribute in the community. Please bring a package of new socks to the event.
This event is free but registration is required. Register here.
All are welcome! See you there!
