What We Do
Mass, Meeting, and Brunch
Mass: Holy Mass is the source and the summit of Christian life. As a Society we attend Sunday Mass together to participate in the cornerstone of our life in Christ together. The Society goes to the 11:00am Mass at Annunciation Parish (3547 Clifton Ave.).
Meeting: After Mass we go to the St. Joseph Altar where the images of St. Paul and Bl. Pier Giorgio are displayed. There we tell stories from Pier Giorgio's life, practice our devotion to him and St. Paul and reverence his relic, and conduct our official meeting, which consists of: announcements for upcoming events, reading of the Rule of SSP, and any other Society business.
Brunch: After the official meeting, we head to the Annunciation rectory next to the church for Sunday brunch until 1:30. This is not officially part of the meeting, so students who need to leave for obligations may do so, but those who can stay are invited and encouraged to come to brunch. We finish brunch at 1:30 in the church with Daytime prayer, and then all help clean the kitchen.
The Frassati Speaker Series
Once a month, typically on Thursday evenings, all are invited to join us for a talk hosted by an educated speaker on Catholic topics.
Some of our speakers have been author Allen Hunt, Director of Vocations for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Father Kyle Schnipple, our Chaplin Father Grogan, seminarian Ethan Moore, the director of Marriage and Family from the Diocese of Cleveland Bill Boomer, UC Physics Professor Dr. Robert Endorf, and UC Chair of Catholic Studies, Dr. Jeff Zalar.
Stay tuned each month for a new and exciting talk!
On the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at 7p.m. we spend an hour in Eucharistic Adoration at Annunciation Parish.
God calls us to spend time with Him in quiet prayer and we do so together in the presence of His Precious Body.
Many members of SSP live in community houses together and regularly host house dinners and other gatherings. At the dinners we eat together at table and then reflect on the scriptural passages that will be read at Mass for that coming Sunday.
