The Young Adult Ministry is reaching out to meet the needs of parish members in their 20s to early 40s through community events in order to create connections among the young adult community and further establish their individual growth within our church. We are planning various outings and events, such as Brunswick Zone, PADS night, potluck/game nights, Crystal Lake Ice House, local bands… Look in the bulletin or contact the parish office for information on upcoming events.

SESSION 4 Friday, August 25th at 7:00 PM
Presenter: Tim Glemkowski
Topic: “Fully Alive: Making the Most of Your 20s and 30s”
Description: “If you become who you were meant to be, you will set the world on fire.” St. Catherine of Siena. It is tempting to treat young adulthood like a transitional period to bigger and better things in vocation, community, and career. What does it mean to bring the “art of living” to young adulthood? In reality, there is a unique flavor to what it means to truly live the adventure that is a life with Christ in your 20s and 30s. Come hear all about what that is!
