Young adolescents, teenagers, college students, and young adults are the Catholic Church of today and the future. They are energetic, passionate, and ready for action. They have questions, want experiences of God and are searching for a path in life. They need support and direction.

The Office for Youth & Young Adult Ministry trains, equips and supports parishes for the tremendous challenge of ministering to, with, by and for our Catholics. The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry reaches hundreds of young Catholics each year throughout the 210 parishes of the Archdiocese with the love and truth of Jesus and His Church. As result parishes come alive with enthusiasm, becoming faith communities; and most of all, young people hear Jesus' call to change this world for God.
