MOYC: Mothers of Young Children

Through authentic friendships, prayer, family activities, and community service, we hope to encourage and equip fellow mothers in the beauty and traditions of the Catholic Faith. If you are a mother of a young child (pregnancy through second grade), then you are invited to join us!

Monthly Meetings

MOYC typically meets the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM — for fellowship, faith, and friendship. Each month we will have an activity or a speaker relevant to mothers raising Catholic families. This year we will be meeting in the St. John’s Adult Faith room (Map Here).
