Thanks to everyone who participated and made this weekend of Alight & Alive so special.
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. 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.

Traditionally, vespers is a service of evening prayer in the Divine Office of the Western Christian Church. YMA Vespers is an opportunity for young adults in their 20’s and 30’s at St. Monica Catholic Community to nurture their spirituality. Every week they share prayer, scripture reading and discussion of topics relevant to the spiritual life of Catholic young adults. Join us Tuesday evenings promptly at 7:30 p.m. in the Spirituality Center* for spiritual refreshment and fellowship.
*Zoom links will be provided the Friday before.

St. Robert’s Center Weekend Food Pantry
The St. Robert’s Center fills a very critical need in our area—at its inception many years ago, the St. Robert’s Center was the only weekend food pantry on the Westside, and remains one of the few places where the homeless can get food on Saturdays. Every week volunteers serve on Saturday, preparing sack lunches for people in need, and distributing clothing and toiletries as needed.
YMA has nabbed a few volunteer spots for young adults in our parish to serve in June
Saturday, June 6 8:30am-11:30am
Saturday, June 13 8:30am-11:30am
