Diocese > Youth > Young Adult Ministry

The Diocese of Greensburg is committed to serve the young adults in our diocese. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has defined young adults as "people in their late teens, twenties, and thirties; single, married, divorced, or widowed; and with or without children."

What is young adult ministry? The USCCB document "Sons and Daughters of the Light" defines four goals for young adult ministry. Successful ministry with young adults achieves four basic goals:

  1. Connect young adults to God through Jesus Christ.
  2. Connect young adults to the church and the Christian community.
  3. Connect young adults to the mission of the church in the world.
  4. Connect young adults to a peer community to further support and nurture their faith.
