Young Adult Ministry

Y.A.M. = Young Adult Ministry 

Our mission, from the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops, is to respond to Pope John Paul II’s call to a “new evangelization” by meeting the social and spiritual needs of local Catholic Young Adults in their late teens, 20s and 30s by connecting them with:

  • Christ
  • The Church
  • The Mission of the Church in the world
  • A Community of their peers     
Whether you are a college student, a young professional in the workforce, or a married young adult/parent, we have programs designed to help meet your spiritual and social needs.  Please see the icons at the bottom of this page for details regarding our programming and events.
