Young Adults/Young Professionals

“And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24-25

The Saint James Young Adults/Professionals Community strives to form an authentic and integrated parish community. Through regular formative activities and social events, we seek to build relationships, grow together in faith, and support the mission of the Church. Both single and married people, 18 years and older, are welcome.
