About Cathedral Young Adults

We are a ministry of the Cathedral of Saint Andrew in downtown Grand Rapids for adults in their 20s and 30s - single or married. As the mother church of the Catholic Diocese of Grand Rapids, we welcome anyone on their journey of faith to join us at Mass or at one of our spiritual, service, or social events.

Maybe you're seeking to make connections and form life-giving friendships with other Catholic young adults in the area? Join us for one of our regular social events.

Or perhaps you feel called by the Holy Spirit to deepen your relationship with the Lord with other young adults in the beautiful Catholic spiritual tradition? Come to one of our spiritual events and/or join one of our small-group communities.

Or maybe it's been awhile since you've actively been in touch with your Catholic faith and you're simply looking for a welcoming and positive place to reconnect? Wonderful, you've come to the right place. Join us.

Our monthly pub discussion series

Q: What's even more fun than trivia?
A: Catholic Pub Trivia

Our Groups, coming this fall:

101 Questions You Need to Ask in Your Twenties
(and let's be honest, your thirties too)

You'll ask yourself one question a day and meet with your group once a week.
With the Holy Spirit as our guide, we'll ask questions like these:
Day 14: How do I make a choice when I don’t know what to choose?
Day 26: How do I keep doing inspiring work even when I feel completely uninspired?
Day 39: What is love?
Day 53: Am I going through my day mindful or mindless?


The Faith Series

Meeting weekly - come when you can, no registration is necessary - we'll gather at the Catholic Information Center to think and talk about what our Catholic faith means. Through our conversations, based on the sacraments, the virtues, the Church's social teaching, and the Holy Spirit, we'll together grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ.

Peppino's Sports Grille
130 Ionia Ave SW in Grand Rapids

Being a young adult today – 20s and 30s, single or married – comes with many important (if not challenging) questions…

How do I make the important decisions in a world of so many choices?

How can I find stability in my life when I get a new job – or a new city to live in – every few years?
How can I meet new people and create new friendships while sustaining the relationships I already have?
What are the responsibilities I have to my family when I am living my own life?
How do I navigate the complicated world of social media and technology?
What is the difference between being alone and being lonely?
The good news is that we don’t have to come up with these answers on our own!

At Holy Brew we come together one Thursday a month over a meal and a pint to talk through these topics. As Catholics, we believe our church’s tradition and teaching can guide us through this formative time of our life. When we share our own experiences and listen to the journeys of other young adults, we trust that the Holy Spirit speaks to our hearts and gives us the strength to life authentic Christian lives. So, bring a friend, or come on your own and we’ll set you up at a table with other young adults.

Holy Brew events this fall:
Thursdays: October 3, November 7, and December 12

Our Catholic faith: awesome.
Pub trivia: again, awesome (but in a different way).
Our Catholic faith + pub trivia: awesome x 2.

Join us at our next Catholic Pub Trivia event:
Friday, August 23 at 7pm

Atwater Brewery
201 Michigan Street NW
Grand Rapids, MI

March 22, 2285 will be the first time since 1818 that what holiday will fall on its earliest possible date? Easter
What Hershey’s candy is so named because the original manufacturing process couldn’t produce the perfectly round candies the company wanted? Milk Duds
What is the fifth book of the New Testament? The Acts of the Apostles

Yard work at Reflections Senior Housing Community

Join us as we continue our partnership Dwelling Place as we help with some landscaping work at Reflections Senior Community. We'll meet there at 9, and should finish up by noon. These projects are a great way to answer Jesus's call to serve our brothers and sisters, to be outside while the weather is still nice, and to meet other people from our young adult community. Bring friends too!


Saturday, September 7 at 9a
Habitat for Humanity Kent County Build Day

Join us as a we continue our partnership with Habitat for Humanity Kent County. This will be our third build day with Habitat this year; so far over 30 people of us from our young adult community have participated in these events. No construction experience is necessary - in fact, the less experience you have, the more fun it will be! Registration is limited to 25 of us, so if you can join, send us an email.
