Young Adult Ministry
The Young Adult Ministry (YAMs), led by the Holy Spirit, seeks to provide spiritual nourishment, inspiration and guidance to adults ages 18 to 35. The ministry, which includes those that are single, married, widowed, divorced and with or without children, encourages proper spiritual and moral principles to empower Catholic’s to live as disciples of Jesus Christ. A choir, usher group and Sunday school class have evolved from this ministry, providing spiritual opportunities for young adult members to showcase their gifts and talents. In addition to conducting an annual retreat, the Ministry also hosts other events throughout the year to promote fellowship and spiritual growth. College students visiting home are welcome to participate.
“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” (I Timothy 4:12).
