What is Café Catholica?
Café Catholica is a series for young adults (ages 18-39) sponsored by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, which has traditionally been held in a central location in Houston in the summers. The summer event has proven so successful that the event is expanding to offer a second series this coming January-February 2019 on the North side of Houston.
The event highlights several dynamic Catholic speakers on topics that are pertinent to young adults. This is not just a boring “Church talk”! It is a chance to gather with hundreds of smart, passionate young adults who are searching for God and want to grow and be challenged in their faith. The event also offers opportunities for Mass, confession, and dinner! There is no cost to attend, but donations are accepted.
The theme for the 2019 North series is: Be Bold, Be Authentic, Belong. Full details are listed below. Please consider joining us for one or all of the sessions!

Become a Café-North Sponsor
Please consider advertising your ministry or business with us through this event. We are anticipating between 300-500 young adults to attend each session. There are two ways to advertise:
1. Purchase an ad in our Café booklet. The booklet is handed out to every participant each week and includes information about the speakers and topics, ads from various sponsors, and information about young adult events in the local area. This is a great way to get your name, ministry, or business seen by hundreds of young adults throughout all four weeks. Total image size should be:
5 x 7.75
5 x 3.75
5 x 1.75
2. Sponsor a table during the event. Sponsors are allowed to sign up for any of the nights, however they will be limited to one table per night (cost is $50). Tables give appropriate groups and businesses the opportunity to educate young adults about vocations, service opportunities, ministries, Catholic religious goods and more. Table sponsors will be listed in the program.
All ads are subject to approval by the YACM office and venue staff. All Café Sponsors must register online here by November 14, 2018.
