The Office of Youth & Young Adult Ministry accompanies and empowers those ministering to youth and young adults.  

Young Adult Ministry: Outreach to young adults with an intentional emphasis on reaching out to those young adults who are estranged from the faith. We offer a variety of Young Adult Retreats throughout the year. We invite you to join us.

Youth Ministry: New initiatives inviting teens into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and his Church are offered throughout the year, such as the National Catholic Youth Conference and the NJ Catholic Youth Rally at Great Adventure in Jackson. In addition, youth ministers are enhanced and supported through gatherings and fellowship opportunities.
