The Young Adult Ministry at St. Mary Magdalen Parish is a community of young adults,
ages 18 - 39, led by young adults, that serves young adults. We want to grow in our spirituality through the exploration of the rich traditions and theology of the Catholic Church, and the social justice issues relevant to our lives as young Catholics. Coming together for discussion, prayer, and service, we challenge each other to apply what we learn to our everyday lives and to the world. By building strong relationships, we support each other on our journeys to Heaven as we bring forth the kingdom of God.
We envision a community of young adults that foster strong spiritual relationships and cultivate deep understandings of ourselves as the living witness of Christ’s presence in one another, our Church, our community, and our world.
The values of the SMM Young Adult Ministry are rooted in our faith in Jesus Christ and His Church. Curiosity calls us to Christ, personal growth brings us nearer to Christ, authentic engagement illuminates Christ in those around us, and Christ-like service allows us to emulate His love in the world.
Discussion, Bible study, lectures by priests/deacons/nuns/religious leaders, workshops, an open space for questioning, etc.
No matter where we are along our faith journeys, we come together in an environment where we can seek an understanding of our place in the world. We orient ourselves to learning with openness, accepting that there is always more to discover about our faith, ourselves, and one another.
Retreats, confession, adoration, prayer, praise and worship, rosary nights, etc.
As young adults, our lives are constantly changing and God is growing in us as we do. We recognize that where we are now is not where we will remain, and we choose to deepen our relationship with Christ.
Bi-monthly meetings, guest speakers (i.e. Theology on Tap), bonfires, retreats, group activities (i.e. trivia nights, intramural sports, beach days), etc.
When we connect with one another lovingly, we ensure that each person’s experience is welcome. We create a safe and brave space for everyone to be affirmed as a child of God and we approach one another with compassion, care, and a listening spirit.
Service, fundraisers for church/community organizations, discussions of social issues, etc.
With Jesus as our guide and example, we cultivate our awareness of the needs of the most marginalized in our community. We are called to walk alongside those who are in pain, regardless of their experience or circumstances.
