How to begin Young Adult Ministry in your Parish

Beginning Young Adult Ministry in your parish is easier than you think. We offer a start-up process (developed in the diocese of Richmond), tailored to your parish that recruites both the adult parishoneers you need to run it, as well as connecting you to resources/events to help your ministry grow.

Heritage Grants for Young Adults

Young Adults in their 20’s & 30’s make up the largest demographic in the Catholic church. These individuals are considerably less religious than older Catholics. In response to this crisis of faith the New Evangelization seeks to re-convert the already baptized through “new methods, ardor and expression”. To assist parishes in these endeavors the Syracuse Diocesan Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry is offering grants to parishes, or groups of parishes, for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. Click here for detailed information (application, instructions and forms)
