Young Adult Ministry

Rooted in connecting young adults to Jesus and the Church, this ministry seeks out ways to live the Church’s mission in communion with peers in an engaging approach. 

Jeremiah 1:7  “But the Lord answered me, Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ To whomever I send you, you shall go; whatever I command you, you shall speak.”

Who are Young Adults in the Diocese of Cleveland?

Young adults are persons in their late teens, twenties, and thirties who represent diverse cultural, racial, ethnic, educational, vocational, social, political, and spiritual backgrounds. They are college students, workers, and professionals; they are persons in military service; they are single, married, divorced, or widowed; they are with or without children; they are newcomers in search of a better life.

Goals of Young Adult Ministry

From the USCCB's Sons and Daughters of Light.

  • Connect young adults with JESUS CHRIST through spiritual formation/direction, religious education/formation, and vocational discernment.
  • Connect young adults to the CHURCH through evangelizing outreach, formation of the faith community, and pastoral care.
  • Connect young adults with the MISSION of the Church in the world through forming a Christian conscience, educating and developing leaders for the present and future.
  • Connect young adults with a PEER COMMUNITY through developing peer leadership and identifying a young adult team for the purpose of forming faith communities of peers.

Themes of Young Adult Ministry

The needs and gifts of young adults are varied. Ministry requires a variety of strategies and approaches that match the needs and gifts of parish and school communities. Important themes need to be emphasized are:

  • The formation of conscience
  • Education for love
  • Vocational discernment
  • Christian involvement in society
  • Missionary responsibility in the world
  • The relationship between faith and reason
  • The existence and meaning of God
  • The problem of evil
  • The Church
  • The objective moral order in relation to personal subjectivity
  • The relationship between man and woman
  • The social doctrine of the Church
