THE FOLLOW UP YP LOUNGE EVENT IN THE FALL 2019:
This fall, YP Lounge we hope to invite Dr. David Baird of Catholic Pacific College and possibly the same panel of 6 local, single Catholics, who appeared at the YP event in March, to return in Oct/Nov 2019. We'll ask them how their lives have changed and ask them if they've had a chance to test their ideas about dating and relationships.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE DOCUMENTARY:
The YP Lounge examines the culture of life from the dating angle. Join us as we explore the award winning 2018 documentary. This movie which was produced by by Paulist Productions, Mpower Pictures, and Angelus Productions, follows 5 single people, ages 18 to 40, as they wade through society at a time when dating has drastically changed. Hanging out, hooking up, texting and social media have dominated the landscape and made traditional dating less attractive. In America, 50% of the population is single and somehow dating has become out of date. This documentary tries to spark a dating revolution because so many young adults struggle with the process.
HOW YOUNG ADULTS CAN BENEFIT
Young adults will benefit from the discussion around many themes such as dating with or without boundaries, knowing the difference between the hookup culture vs. chaste dating, how to date well and how to break up well. The movie also suggests going on a Dating Assignment. Come find out more about it.
Vancouver young adults have felt more inspired after watching the documentary. By adding some simple structure to the dating process, dating can be less confusing and awkward.

*** Mission of The YP Lounge
The purpose of the YP Lounge is to help young professionals appreciate the many facets to building a culture of life vs. a culture of death.
The YP Lounge is developed by the same creators as Catholic After Hours(TM)
YP topics will cover career, dating, life, marriage, family, and provide an understanding of the fundamentals needed to care for the common good.
Young professionals will also be knowledgeable, savvy, and more fulfilled as persons when they understand how to define human dignity, authentic freedom, happiness, and liberty.
Philosophical, objective and scientific truths, natural law, virtue, and universal principles will be their guide. This is the key to building a flourishing society.
The special events downtown are presented by dynamic ‘talk show hosts’ and an informed guest panel who can address relevant issues and provide insights by analyzing pop culture, the frontiers of science, philosophy, law, medicine, ethics, political philosophy, religion and the social sciences.
