    In preparation for the 2018 Synod on Youth ("Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment"), Pope Francis is calling on all young people aged 16 - 29 to complete a survey that will express their thoughts--even those who have moved away from the Church or are questioning the existence of God.

    “Every young person has something to say to others, something to say to the adults, to the priests, sisters, bishops and the pope. We all need to hear you.”

    Please share with the young people in your life!

    Young Adults Building Healthy Relationships

    All young adults (18 to 35) are invited to attend a life changing four week series based on St. John Paul II’s Love and Responsibility. The talks and discussions will be grounded upon Edward Sri’s Men, Women & The Mystery of Love. In an era, where there is much confusion about love and relationships, these insights are perhaps needed now more than ever. These evenings will shed light on the mysterious dynamics between men and women, and at the same time, challenge us to live out these relationships better. The series with conclude with a mass celebrated by Cardinal Tobin.
