Our Mission

Welcome!

We are the Young Adult Community of the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in New York City. As adults in our 20s and 30s, we strive for a faithful response to the call from Jesus Christ in the contemporary world. We seek a faith life inspired by the Gospels and informed by our Catholic tradition.  

We encourage a mature spirituality through prayer and liturgy. We promote social justice by serving those with little or no voice. As one community in faith, we look forward to growing closer to Christ by growing closer to each other.

Get involved!

Meet us after the 5:15pm Sunday mass at St. Paul the Apostle (60th & Columbus), or email youngadults@stpaultheapostle.org
