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.

A Time to Mourn and A Time to Dance - Eccl. 3:4 - Using Ignatian Spirituality: The Examen
Saturday,  August 14 | 9 a.m. - 12 noon | Spirituality Center - $15

The Examen, from St. Ignatius, is a technique of prayerful reflection on the day in order to become aware of God’s presence and discern direction for us. We will pray the Examen and reflect on our experiences this past year as a way to practice continual awareness of God in our lives.   How have I changed? What have I learned? What am I being called to now?
