CATHOLIC OUTREACH MINISTRIES:
On February 14th, at its monthly "2nd Friday Fellowship" event, the Young Adults
for Catholic Charities Planning Team announced a name change: Diocese of Gary
Young Adult Catholic Outreach Ministries (or "COM" for short). Same great
people, same great mission- to gather together for fun and to live out our faith
by serving others. Except now, in addition to serving Catholic Charities, we can
serve other great agencies doing great work in Northwest Indiana and beyond.
