Rooted – SJA Young Adult Ministry

Our mission is to form a Catholic community of young adults ages 18-35, both married and single, focused on seeking an authentic and deeper relationship with Christ through community, faith formation, and participation in the life of the Church.

Through community with our peers, we grow not only in our faith but in relationship with each other. We believe that our faith can be ignited through community and above all devotion to the Eucharist.

We hope to empower  young adults to be able to go and make other young adult disciples, and help them also to fully participate in the life of the parish, thereby giving back to parish life.
