Young Adult Community

Blessing of Engaged Couples at SMG

"It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you." Saint John Paul II

We are dedicated to engaging our young adults ages 18-35 by providing venues for them to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and live out their Catholic faith through social, spiritual, and service opportunities.  Though this group is diverse -- ranging from college students to early career professionals to young families -- there are shared experiences and common goals.  We want to use our God-given talents, interests, and energy to connect with others, inspire one another, and build each other up as we make our earthly journey and strive to follow the light of Christ.  In this season of life that brings multiple transitions and a healthy dose of uncertainty, sharing in the membership of a Catholic tradition with deep roots and universality, finding fellowship in a peer community of shared values and familiar struggles, and being commissioned with the hands-on, real-life task of being missionary disciples is comforting and empowering.

If you are interested in being part of this community or have an idea to grow this ministry, please contact Kate McGrath via email or at 781-598-4313 x224.

10 Survival Tips for Catholic Young Adults

College Student Faith Care Package

"I will never forget you. See, upon the palms of my hands I have written your name..." (Isaiah 49:15b-16 NAB). We taught our children that through the sacraments, they became members of our faith family.  So now that they're young adults in college, let's show them!  

Let’s keep our college-age children “in the loop” and “in our prayers” while away at school.  Fill out a form, and we’ll periodically send them prayers for midterms and finals, helpful faith-based articles, seasonal plug-in activities, and every college student's lifeline...SNACKS! For more information or to volunteer to help grow this ministry, contact Kate McGrath.
