Young Adults

You are very important to us at St Clare of Assisi Parish and to the whole Church and we want to do whatever we can to support you.  We know that it is challenging to stay in contact with this very mobile and professional group we call "young adults."  You are at a very exciting time in your lives with college, university, dating, new relationships, new jobs, transitions and more transitions.  

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix has a webpage (above) dedicated to Young Adults in the diocese.  It is your link to most activities, events and young adult groups around our diocese. I can't keep this page up to date with all the links so please follow the threads. Here are just a few of many links:

Find out more about exciting things happening by going to the Young Adults page
Please look for them on Facebook  phxcatholicyoungadults 
and on Flocknote phoenixdiocese.flocknote.com/PhxCatholicYA
and have a professionals group ycpphoenix.org

We can thrive on your energy and the Church needs your dynamism and ideas and participation.

We are just starting to put this page together and will list information that we hope you will find helpful to connect you to other young adults in our parish or in the Phoenix metro area.

We recommend that you start subscribing to Flocknote interest groups in the Diocese of Phoenix such as this one that I found recently.
Here is the flocknote regarding activities during Lent 2019

Upcoming this month and next are several opportunities to grow in faith. Of particular note are the following events:

  • How long has it been since you've gone on retreat? Join young adults for Desire: A Young Adult retreat on Saturday, March 16th at St. Bernadette Parish. Pre-registration *really* helps with catering numbers, so please register in advance. 
  • The Spiritual Life Conference, featuring Fr. John Parks & Sister Johanna Paruch will take place on Saturday, March 16th at St. Thomas Apostle parish. Tickets & more information available at this link. 
  • CSC is hosting a Young Adult retreat the first weekend in April, at Mt. Claret Retreat Center. More information here!
  • Be sure to scroll down for more events, and check out the full list of upcoming events of interest to young adults on the Facebook page.
  • Finally, do you know anyone between the ages of 18 & 22 who wants to serve the Church but isn't sure how? Or maybe you're in that age range and want to spend your summer doing something MORE.  Totus Tuus Phoenix offers the opportunity to spend just 11 weeks over the summer, serving as a missionary in a team. Scroll to the very end of this email to learn more about this exciting opportunity! 

If I can be of service to you in any way, please reach out and let me know how. Have a wonderful week, and God bless you.

In Jesus,
