Welcome to the Our Lady of Grace Young Adults Group!
To make Jesus Christ known and loved.
To help young adults engage in a meaningful way with the Our Lady of Grace Parish community to invite them deeper into the Worship Services, Liturgical Ministries, Pastoral Care, or Service to and for our Community.
Basically help our the young adults of Our Lady of Grace to feel a part of the larger community, to feel at home where they know they are wanted, needed, and their spiritual and social needs are met.
How do we do it?
In creating, hosting, and participating in a variety of YA events we will help our YAs engage more deeply in the life of the Parish. Read below for more information about our various programs.
YA Formed Studies
Named after the comment the two disciples made after Jesus, on the road to Emmaus, interpreted to them what referred to him in all the scriptures. After they encountered Jesus, the disciples said “our hearts were burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us”. This is a nine-week practical Study that will journey through the Bible, opening the Scriptures to the participants, with the goal of helping them encounter Jesus. There is both a small group and large group component.
Our goal is to create an environment where we are called into critical thinking, and discussion about how we as Catholics are called to see God in everything. Started by one of our young adults (Karen Schultz) - Friday Films meet once a month on Fridays for fellowship, food, a movie, and discussion.
Mission- to engage and support married couples through the first five years of marriage by creating a community that fosters a sense of support and belonging. Through formation, reflection, and awareness, a couple’s marital relationship with God at the center is strengthened and made more fruitful. Discipleship becomes more intentional through opportunities to steward others in service, participation, and partnering with other parish ministries. Sposi Novelli hosts several formal and many informal events throughout the year. Visit the Sposi Novelli page for more information.
