Resources for Young Adults

Looking for a young adult ministry in your area?

View our diocesan list below to see if your diocese has a young adult ministry and how to contact them.

Please note that not every diocese has a webpage, or sometimes even an office appointed for young adult ministry. For such dioceses on this list, the links provided direct you to the office that currently handles young adult ministry (e.g. adult faith formation, evangelization, youth ministry, etc.)

 Take Action

Visit the USCCB's Action Center to get involved and answer the call to discipleship.

Human beings are themselves considered consumer goods to be used and then discarded. We have created a “throwaway” culture which is now spreading. It is no longer simply about exploitation and oppression, but something new. Exclusion ultimately has to do with what it means to be a part of the society in which we live; those excluded are no longer society’s underside or its fringes or its disenfranchised–they are no longer even a part of it. The excluded are not the “exploited” but the outcast, the “leftovers”. -Pope Francis (11/24/13)
