Youth and Young Adults
The outreach to Youth & Young Adults is part of the Archdiocesan Office for Marriage, Family and Life whose mission is to assist and encourage all Christians to fulfill their call to holiness.
Pope John Paul II and the documents of 2nd Vatican Council call the laity to transform the world where they live. Our office promotes this evangelization, helping to create a culture of life, by programs that support: the vocation of marriage, the single state, and outreach to youth and young adults.
We seek to support strong vocations rooted in faith and Christian freedom, lived in service to our families, communities, and church parishes.
