Young Adult Ministry at Blessed Sacrament

The goal of YAM is to to grow spiritually as Catholics, to serve each other & our community, and to have fun!


Our Mission

To share friendship & fellowship with other young adults!  To grow spiritually as Catholics, to serve each other & our community, and to have fun during all activities!


Diocesan Mission:

“Young adulthood is a passage of life when new decisions are made, paths are taken and a place is established in one’s community. Young adult ministry is for those in their 20’s and 30’s, with varied kinds of work and goals. It provides an opportunity to share friendship, fellowship and faith with other Catholic Christians. Young adult ministry encourages people to interact among themselves, with the parish and beyond. A mark of the ministry is multicultural hospitality; everyone is welcome. The ministry is organized by young adults with the support of parish staff, and provides a forum for social, spiritual, service and educational activities.”


Becoming a member

Our membership is open to all young adult Catholics: single, married, single again, with or without children. There are no membership fees or obligations.


Leadership Team

The leadership team models the 4 pillars of our faith – Word, Worship, Community, and Service (also referred to as educational, spiritual, social, and service).  As young adults we recognize that attention to each pillar is essential in our development in our relationship with God and other individuals in our community.
