Sunday, October 28th – Austin Area

Austin locals, these post-conference events are designed to be opportunities to build stronger community with other parishioners from your parish and also to have more fellowship with those who’ve come from out-of town. If you’re a member of one of the listed parishes, let us know if you can serve as a point person for trips! Out-of-towners, these events are great ways to spend more time with the locals and experience more Austin area attractions!

The following options are built around Mass at a local parish, meals together at unique venues and a relaxing afternoon activity. If you’re up for more, meet for Vespers at St. Louis or head to the Oasis for live music and dancing – and a beautiful view of the sunset on Lake Travis!
