Young Adult Ministry is back at SMM!

"For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” -Matthew 18:20

The St. Margaret Mary Young Adults Ministry is a community of young professionals seeking to grow in friendship and faith through formation, prayer, service, and social events. Our goal is to create a home for young adults in this parish. We believe faith-filled community is vital in this time of life as we pursue holiness in our studies, our work, and our relationships with others.

"Become who you are meant to be and you will set the world on fire" -St. Catherine of Sienna

Our events aim to inspire us to be the best version of ourselves, ranging from Holy Hour to Happy Hour! Some of our ideas include Sunday Mass & brunch, volunteer opportunities, and speaker socials... the possibilities are endless! We hope to grow this ministry to its full potential, and to bring our powerful presence into parish life. All are welcome!

“Young people, do not be afraid to be holy!” - St. Pope John Paul II
