​Trip to FIT Museum with Covenant House 
Saturday, October 4, 12:30 p.m.
Join us as we team with the youth of Covenant House to explore the Most Fashionable Museum in New York City! Founded in 1969, the mission of the Museum is to advance knowledge of fashion through exhibitions, programs and publications. We will meet at Covenant House and travel together to the Museum.

Partnering with Covenant House
This season, Out at St. Paul is partnering with Covenant House, an organization dedicated to providing sanctuary, guidance, and support services to NYC homeless youth. We hope to foster a relationship with their LGBT youth community through establishing a support and mentoring group, participating in recreational activities, and leading fundraising initiatives. Please consider supporting this work any way you can.

Digging in: “Synod of the Family” 
Sunday, October 5, 6:30 p.m.
Father Gil will present an introduction to the extraordinary Synod or “meeting” convoked by Pope Francis. The meeting begins in Rome on the same day with the theme of "pastoral challenges of the family in the context of evangelization." 
In addition to reflecting on how to support all families, two of the hot button issues are communion for divorced and same sex relationships. Come and dig into how the synod may affect all Catholics, including divorced and LGBT members of our community. A light reception will follow.
