Catholic young adults don’t always meet in a church. Sometimes they meet at a polo match.

Members of the Arlington Young Adult Ministry spent time together on a berm watching the grand finale polo matches at the Great Meadow Polo Club in The Plains Sept. 23.

Brendan Gotta, Young Adult coordinator in the diocesan Office of Youth, Campus and Young Adult Ministry, said the group first started attending the polo matches three years ago. “We saw it as a way to invite people who live out west to have an opportunity to get together,” he said.

Sarah Christensen has attended each year. “It is unique and different,” she said. “It is nice to be outside and enjoying the weather.”

She invited Danielle Gallagher, who just moved to the area. Gallagher, who works in Washington, said she appreciates attending events with people who have similar values. “It is nice when you come to an event like this and you have a mutual understanding of things,” she said.
