"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

A Message from the “Email Guy”

Hey guys,

Check out this article titled “Young Adults Returning to Faith” that was recently written by one of our own members, Lana Kaczmarek.

We’re not going anywhere. In fact, we’re growing, and we’re not stopping.

As I stated in our previous email, we have some YUGE things planned for the upcoming year. One of those things is giving you guys opportunities to truly make this group your own. We are truly bright, warm lights in the midst of a dark, cold world – the light of Christ within us. And we all have the power to bring that light to others!

One of our goals this year is to produce more content directed at young adults who might be on the fence about the Catholic faith. We are looking for more Lana’s! If you are interested in helping us produce articles, photos, videos, and other content to be posted to our website and social media sites, WE WANT YOU!

If you want to get involved in helping us achieve our goals, please reply to this email or send me a text at 407-415-3583.

We, your leadership team, are passionate about empowering the talented people that we have in this group. Share your talents with the world, and let’s go participate in the mission of Christ and make a difference out there!

And for those of you who might not necessarily be writers or content-producers… don’t worry. We have plenty more opportunities coming up for you.

Be bold. Make this group your own. We CAN make the difference.

Quote of the Week:

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket;
it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.
Just so, your light must shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.”
- Matthew 5: 14-16
