Young Adult Ministry


Though technology is there to connect us to our Church and its people, we need real contact more than ever. Through Instagram and Facebook and this website, we look to draw young adults to the Gospel message. Through these programs below, young adults will flourish in community and fellowship through the Holy Spirit.

You are invited to follow us on Instagram

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them.” — Matthew 18:20
Who We Are: Passionate group of Catholic young adults, aged 21-35 Where We Meet: St. John’s Room at Church of the Ascension When & What Time: Thursday evenings starting at 7:00 p.m. What We Do: We discuss upcoming Sunday Mass readings followed by a fellowship activity — with occasional DD functions during weekends.


Public Divinity brings Beauty and Truth to our community through the many creative gifts that God gave to its people at Church of the Ascension. We support each other in our own artistic endeavors and also align our efforts to bring an impact to our local culture and church. All are welcome so bring someone. Click here to learn more.


True Food gathers those who are interested in learning about who God is calling you to be through the always fulfilling way of coming together potluck style and discussing over some home cooked food. We cover the toughest questions of life and love. If this sounds like your cup of tea and are interested, click here to find out more.


Parables in Pubs connects young adults locally. The game plan won’t be the same every time we meet, but it will always create space to join in and get to know others who are Catholic or who are interested in learning more. A great time to invite a friend who is starting the road to something deeper. Click here to learn more.
