Young Adults (ages 21-39)

We would like to start a new Young Adults group.  Our previous group is getting older and many have small children.  They now share those relationships in their lives as parents.  The previous group developed great friendships through events such as Saints games, Christmas parties, Stations of the Cross followed by Friday night fish at Tiff’s, alternated with service projects such as serving coffee & donuts or Feed My Starving Children. If you are interested in meeting monthly with other young adults in the parish alternating social and service events please call the parish office.  All visiting, new, or veteran parishioners, ages 21-39, married or single, with or without kids are welcome in this group.  The goal is to build community, deepen faith, and share in service.
