Young Adult Ministry

The vision of the Office of Young Adult & Campus Ministry (YACM) is to connect young adults 18-39 years old to Jesus Christ, the Church, the mission of the Church in the world, and our peers. The YACM Office supports over 60 parishes and young adult communities (in English and Spanish) across the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. Find a community of young adults near you!

The YACM Office hosts many social, spiritual and service opportunities for young adults throughout the year, including the Archdiocesan Young Adult Day, Café Catholica,  Charis Ignatian Spirituality Retreats, Bayou Awakening Retreats, Discovering Love with Clarity Series, and Challenging Faith Series.
