Welcome to Cor Unum!

UPDATE: We are currently working with the neighbors to find an agreeable arrangement. Otherwise, we plan on using this particular property for another community building possibility that we know will be approved and which will still be in accord with our Catholic mission of building community. Even if not here we still hope to establish a place for young adult community soon. Please pray for God’s will to prevail.

Please join us in establishing the Frassati House, a place dedicated to the young adult community (ages 21-39). The Frassati House seeks to create a culture conducive to holiness by evangelizing through community, faith, culture, and beauty. Your support is necessary to make this vision a reality.

Since there are no fees for members, the Frassati House will operate through the donations of sponsors. We encourage the broader community who wants a place like this for young adults to consider sustaining the Frassati House through monthly or one time donations as a sponsor.

Check our our Donation Policy for any concerns. 

Explore Cor Unum’s mission, this proposal for the membership-based Catholic Social Organization at the Frassati House, and our plan to establish intentional communities for Catholic Young Adult professionals to live together in a household of charity, respect, and support.

The Catholic Church has the best theology of community, but what good is an excellent theology if we don’t also work for its corresponding reality? A WHAT without a WHERE is NOWHERE, and many of us feel like there is NOWHERE to go for the everyday life-giving community we desire. This is our chance for an authentic Catholic community. We need a culture of encounter which vitalizes our faith and leads to a culture of love. Click here to explore WHY THE FRASSATI HOUSE IS NEEDED?
