Young Adult Ministry

Young Adult Ministry, in the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis, works with ministers, communities, and young adults to meet the pastoral needs of those 18-39, singles and couples, in the Diocese of Rochester. The Diocesan Office of Young Adult Ministry, in collaboration with parishes, seeks to fulfill the four goals of young adult ministry as identified in the USCCB document Sons and Daughters of Light:

Connecting young adults with Jesus Christ
Connecting young adults with the Church
Connecting young adults with the mission of the Church
Connecting young adults with a peer community

If your faith community is seeking ways to connect with and engage young adults, please contact us. If you have young adult events you would like to promote throughout the diocese, please send information to Leslie Barkin or Mark Capellazzi
