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.

Parish Young Adult Groups Many parishes in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston host young adult communities to enrich the faith life of their young adult parishioners and to invite young adults to contribute to the larger parish community (English and Spanish groups).

Discovering Love with Clarity Choosing from multiple soul mates is not an easy task for singles, dating or engaged couples. Join other adults of Archdiocese of Galveston/Houston in “Discovering Love with Clarity” series that will change your life and how you understand relationship. September-March at three locations: Downtown, North and Sugarland. $5 for the whole series.

Challenging Faith Series  Challenging Faith is a series of evening discussions for asking tough questions and getting straight answers. Young people have honest doubts and questions about belief in God, the Catholic faith and the truth of the Bible, especially in relation to science. We offer to engage these tough questions and offer as straight-forward answers as possible from the perspective of the Catholic faith and centuries of Church wisdom. We may not have all the answers, but we promise honest ones. Free event.

Café Catholica Speaker Series is a summer dinner-lecture series for young adults, featuring dynamic speakers.  The Cafe is held over four Mondays in the month of July. 5:15pm Confessions, 6:15pm mass, 7:15pm dinner, 8:15pm speaker, table exhibits, and socializing.  Come for all or part of the evening! Free event.
