“It’s our outreach to young adults,” King said. “And, through this we just want to invite them to celebrate, to have some bears with the archbishop, a couple other bishops, seminarians and just get to hang out with other fellow Catholics.”

King says part of the conversation will be focus on faith, answering questions, and delivering an invitation to come downtown to the cathedral next Sunday evening..

“Come have fun with us,” he said. “Get a new picture of what it means to be Catholic.”
