Young Ministering Adults (YMA), the fellowship group for singles and couples in their 20s and 30s, provides spiritual, educational, and social activities and programs that support young adults as they discover new roles in family, work, society, and the Catholic Church. Join us for fellowship and fun! 

 

A team of young adults and a staff coordinator lead the ministry. Along with 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 the involvement, participation, and integration of young adults in the parish and advocates for the concerns of young adults today. 

  

Theology on Tap:
Finding Spirituality in the Transitions of Life, Dating, and Relationships
Tuesday,  August 9, 6:30 p.m. | Grand Pavilion & Zoom

Summer is a special season with slower days, gentle breezes, and ambient light. It’s also a time of transition throughout the chapters of life, moving us from one school year to the next as children, to time away on vacation, and returning back to work as adults.

 

During times of transition in all areas of life, we need God the most. Spirit also has a unique way of touching our hearts at those times, unlike any others. The transition experience provides an ideal opportunity to deepen our spirituality, receive gifts from the Divine, and awaken to God’s presence in our lives in new ways.

 

Join Molly as she invites you to look at the unique stages of dating and relationships and the inherent transitions that provide unique opportunities to grow your faith. You’ll also identify the unrecognized places where God showed up to support you during these times in the past.

 

Lastly, you’ll look at how your daily walk with God can help prepare you for future transitions, whether they are joyous occasions of celebration and new beginnings or unexpected losses and heartache. Whatever the case, the spirit is waiting to connect with you!
