Young Adult Apostolate

Married and single young adults, ages 19-34, gather in various ways at St. Peter Church to grow in holiness, vocational discernment, and friendship.

"When you wonder about the mystery of yourself, look to Christ who gives you the meaning of life. When you wonder what it means to be a mature person, look to Christ who is the fullness of humanity. And when you wonder about your role in the future of the world and of the United States, look to Christ. Only in Christ will you fulfill your potential as an American citizen and as a citizen of the world community" (Blessed John Paul II, Oct. 3, 1979).
