Young Adults (YA) Track

The vision of St. John Paul II in inaugurating World Youth Day, developed into a decades-long challenge to the Church to call each generation of youth and young adults to the heights of sainthood. This apostolate to the future is at the heart of renewal. This track offers a three-part set of workshops targeted to the unique world of the young adult, ages 18-35. Any effort to evangelize and make disciples of young adults must start with a carefully-formed Catholic worldview and a genuine missionary mindset. Workshops explore the essential elements for developing and growing in faith as a young adult, and effective guidance for those in ministry to this age group. Particular attention is given to sustained long-term growth in the spiritual life, not just short-term gains.
