Young Adult Ministry
Who are the young adults of St. John’s Cathedral? We are young professionals who are looking to create a Christian community through shared faith and fellowship. In 2017 the Vestry published a three-year strategic plan consisting of five goals for the congregation. The third goal states: “Our parishioners will commit to and find the resources to structure programs for the younger members of our parish: children, youth, 20 to 35-year-olds.” To meet this goal, the church hired me as the full-time Youth and Young Adult Minister to foster the growth of the Youth Group and to establish and grow a vibrant Young Adult Ministry. The Young Adults group began meeting in the summer of 2017. Here’s a little more about what we’ve been doing.
The Young Adult Ministry seeks to develop our faith through fellowship and prayer by:
Meeting for dinner followed by Compline (evening prayer) or a devotion, and games
Taking day trips and other outings
Going on spiritual retreats like Vocare
Having meaningful discussions about a wide variety of topics
We welcome all young adults to any of our gatherings, events and retreats. Compline is held at the Cathedral on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Undercroft. Bring your own dinner and join us! On the alternate weeks, we gather in a member’s home. Outings are generally planned during the Compline meetings and will be announced through the bulletin.
