Anthem, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s outreach to youth and young adults, will open the Christmas season with a night of worship and adoration, followed by a party at one of the city’s hotspots.
Christian musical artists Bob Lesnefsky and Sarah Kroger will lead the prayer gathering, which will take place at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul on Friday, Dec. 1 from 7 to 9 p.m.
The fellowship continues with an after party at North Bowl Lounge, located 909 North 2nd Street, Philadelphia. Anthem has reserved the upstairs loft, which features private bowling lanes, a 50-seat bar, pool tables, arcade games and a spacious lounge.
The night will include food, a cash bar and a bowling tournament. Winners of the tournament will receive club seating at the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s “Ghosts of Christmas Eve” concert at the Wells Fargo Center on Dec. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
After-party attendees must be at least 21 years of age. Limited tickets are available, and there are two types for the event. For details and ticket purchases, visit Anthem’s website or get your ticket here.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
