Young Adults Group
We encourage all young adults in their 20’s and 30’s to stay involved and dare to be active in a Catholic faith community just for young adults. Developing your relationship with Christ, alongside other young adults, may help you to find a pathway to your true purpose. Let the Lord can transform your heart; aspire to be a vessel of Christ’s love.
As of March 12, 2020, public meetings are canceled due to the Coronavirus restrictions, so all events will be virtual. The Young Adults coordinator is Irene Xenos, firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also email our Youth Ministry Director James Armstrong, email@example.com.
The St. Anthony of Padua Young Adults (the CURE: Christ Unites, Renews & Energizes) are continuing their regular community meetings via Zoom on the 1st & 3rd Thursdays. CURE will be a time of prayer and fellowship, beginning with communal prayer and featuring social activities such as party games and themed discussions.
The alternating weeks, they will participate in the Diocesan Young Adult Theology on Tap series for talks and Trivia on the 2nd & 4th Mondays. Carmen “China” Briceño will be the guest on the May 11th series. She has dedicated her life to the evangelization of youth, young adults, and families in both English and Spanish.
St. Anthony Young Adult Ministry Mission Statement: The St. Anthony Young Adult Ministry provides a nurturing space for those in their 20s and 30s to share their faith journey. This group opens the doors of the Church for those
seeking to encounter Christ alongside fellow Young Adults. We value respect, inclusion, faith, and an openness to God’s presence and message. Through bi-monthly meetings and social events, we explore how the Catholic faith is reflected in our daily lives, and how we can become more sanctified.
What is your purpose in life? Today, many young adults are seeking to find the answer to this question through a secular lens, and oftentimes come to the realization that they truly do not know. Some try to find it in the pleasures of this world and are still left feeling unsatisfied. Staying active in your faith as a young adult is proving to be more and more difficult today. Our culture continues to persuade that one’s self-worth is found in productivity and in wealth, not in a relationship with Christ. Finding purpose is a journey. In our Young Adult Group we journey together, it is OK to be uncertain, to question, and to be a seeker. Our ultimate purpose is found in the truth that we belong completely to Christ. When we know this then we can start using our gifts and passions to glorify Christ instead of ourselves. Choosing the good, true, and beautiful is a tall order as young Catholics, but when we place Jesus above everything else, peace flows from our hearts. Happiness replaces anxiety.
