WELCOME EVERYONE: No matter who you are, no matter where you’ve been, no matter what you’ve done, you are invited, accepted and most welcome in our parish communities. We hope Christ will bring fullness into your life, and that we can provide you with the spiritual support and information you need.
The Southeast Rochester Catholic Young Adult Ministry
is for people in their 20’s and 30’s: singles, dating, engaged, married, divorced, widowed, college students and young professionals, the unemployed and the over-employed!
You Have Different Lives but One Quest – to live out your Catholic Faith in today’s world. Come share your journey, joys and sorrows with others who seek to know how God is working in their lives.
We Appreciate Your Gifts and Talents – Our philosophy is that young adults want to be involved on all levels: as communion ministers, lectors, musicians, on committees, in social events and in service opportunities. Twice a year we hold a book discussion and a seasonal catechetical session. We offer a variety of these opportunities throughout the year. Check our website regularly!

Social and Spiritual Gatherings:
Frasatti Society meets every Thursday night at 7:00pm. Contact Fr. Matthew Jones for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
For the past two years we have been visiting the monks at Mt. Savior Monastery. During the spring months when they are in the height of the lambing season we have found that the new births bring such depth to our experience of prayer and contemplation that we have returned year after year. http://www.msaviour.org.
Blessed Sacrament Supper Program– YA Service night is every third Thursday at 6:00pm till @ 7:30. We do not have to prepare the dinner just prep the desserts, bread and beverages, serve the dinner and clean up. The Supper Program serves dinner Monday- Friday to anyone who enters the door. We usually serve 75 to 120 people.
Homeless Initiative– take supplies to homeless people under the supervision of a trained team of social workers, doctors and nurses.
RCIA– Rite of Christian Initiation
Becoming Catholic is a process that is unique to each person that comes in our doors. When you feel the time is right have a conversation with one of the staff about how to enter into the process formally. Until then we also have some meetings called inquiry sessions just to talk about the faith. Talk to any of our staff for more information.
Bringing Faith Alive – Living out your faith can be difficult when you are immersed in your studies, a new career or if you are starting a family. Your participation in Parish life may add a new depth to your spiritual experience and increase the dynamic relationship you have with God.
