Welcome to “YAM” Young Adult Ministry

What We Do

  • Young Adult Ministry serves the spiritual needs of young adult Catholics (ages 18-39), including those returning to the Church and those discerning the faith. YAM provides opportunities to engage in faith-sharing, fellowship, and community service, enhancing one’s growth and relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • USCCB Definition of Young Adult Ministry

Mission Statement

  • Our YAMily strives to deepen our everyday relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer, the Sacraments, ministry, and friendships rooted in the Catholic faith. As young adults desiring holiness and discerning life’s vocation, we hold fast to the Church’s teaching by proclaiming the Good News of the Lord and sharing God’s love to all those we encounter.

Why You Should Join

  • Young adulthood is a time of transition, exposure to diversity, and finding identity, where the world and its challenges often shake one’s faith. Here at St. Margaret Mary Church, our YAMily offers a community that helps you feel grounded and safe in your Catholic identity.

There is no special training needed to join our ministry, we welcome you as you are!

Membership is completely voluntary, although we would love to see your dedication!

When We Meet

  • We meet on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month from 6pm to 8pm for prayer, dinner, and fellowship in the faith formation office!
