Young Adult Ministry

A Catholic ministry for young adults in their 20s-30s

The Cathedral of Saint Patrick Young Adult Ministry ("YAM") is a group of adults in their twenties and thirties, single; married; with or without children. The fundamental objective of this group is to encourage young adults to participate in activities that focus on spiritual growth and a strong relationship with Jesus Christ, while at the same time forming lasting relationships with other young Catholics in the parish.

Each month, our Young Adult Ministry participates in at least four events encompassing the following categories:

Sun Sun Sun Sun

A.C.T.S. - Held the first Thursday of each month, we gather in the Cathedral for A.C.T.S. (Adoration, Confession, Talk, Social). The event begins with adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Confessions are heard during adoration by one of the priests from the Cathedral. Following adoration, we listen to a brief talk on the Catholic Faith. Finally, our group heads out to a local restaurant for food and drinks -- usually Inizio's pizza.

Service - We give back our time and talent by offering service to the Cathedral and our local community. In addition to our annual events (Couples Night Out, Soup & Stations, Trunk or Treat, March for Life in Washington D.C., and the Parish Pancake Breakfast) we've volunteered at Second Harvest Foodbank, Operation Christmas Child, Holy Angels, and countless other charitable organizations in the Charlotte region.

Theology - We gather each month for a theological talk by a guest speaker and a social. During the cooler months, we attend "Theology on Tap" at Tyber Creek Pub (1933 South Boulevard in South End). When Summer arrives, we have "Getting Grilled" at Latta Park (601 E Park Avenue northwest of the Cathedral) where we enjoy food and drinks, outdoor activities, and listen to a talk on the Catholic Faith.

Social - Our social events are the perfect way to relax and enjoy spending time with some of your fellow Cathedral young adults. These events have included meeting up at restaurants and breweries, sporting events, game nights, ice skating, line dancing, Tuck Fest, and so much more!
