Young Ministering Adults (YMA), the fellowship group for singles and couples in their 20s and 30s, provides spiritual, educational and social activities as well as programs that support young adults as they discover new roles in family, work, society and the Catholic Church. Come join us for fellowship and fun!
A team of young adults along with a staff coordinator coordinate all activities for the ministry. Along with coordinating activities at the parish, the YMA Core Team makes it a priority to invite and welcome young adults to the community and to provide information to its leaders and participants. The ministry also seeks to improve involvement, participation, and integration of young adults at the parish and also advocates for the concerns of young adults today.

Breakfast is at 6:45am…an early call! Carpoolers meet at St. Monica at 6am.Metered parking is available on Hope Street directly across from the Saint Francis Center entrance. (For just 50 cents an hour)
Volunteers prepare breakfast - cut vegetables, crack and stir eggs, make toast, and serve coffee in front of Center for folks waiting in line and deliver food and beverages to guests at table.
We are done by 10am.
