Young Adult Ministry

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has defined young adults as "people in their late teens, twenties, and thirties; single, married, divorced, or widowed; and with or without children."  This includes people in Generation X (born between 1963 and 1979) as well as the Millennial Generation (born between 1980 and 1995). Within this incredibly broad category, there are several dimensions and demographics including, but not limited to:

  • College Students
  • Young Adult Singles
  • Dating & Engaged Couples
  • Young Adult Married Couples
  • Divorced & WIdowed Individuals
  • Interfaith Relationships
  • Parent Couples & Single Parents
  • White Collar & Blue Collar
  • Miltary Personnel & Veterans
  • Unemployed & Under-Employed
  • Seminarians & Clergy
  • Lay Ecclesial Ministers
  • Urban & Inner City Residents
  • Suburban Young Adults
  • Rural & Small Town Residents

 

What connects all these men and women together is the experience of transition - to discover their identity as adults; to find a place of love and belonging; to achieve a sense of purpose in their work; and to spiritually explore the meaning of life and the divine.

To help young adults in their journey through this period in their lives, the Roman Catholic Church has developed an intentional outreach and pastoral ministry to men and women in their late teens, twenties, and thirties called Young Adult Ministry.
