Our
Mission is simple.  We want... 

1. To help young adults develop their spiritual life rooted in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. 

2.  To help young adults develop relationships with peers who share similar values and beliefs which nurture and strengthen their faith.

3.  To invite young adults to participate in the life of the Church through worship, faith formation programs, and community service.

 

We hope you will join us each and every Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m. for Mass in the St. Viator Chapel within the Catholic Pastoral Center.  All ages are welcome.
