a ministry of
the Catholic Cathedral of Saint Andrew
for young adults in Grand Rapids



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.

What is the story of salvation?

It’s exactly that: a story.

It’s the story of how God loved us into existence, and when we turned away from Him through sin, His response was clear: “I’m coming back for you.”

In this small group program, we'll meet weekly online to explore how God keeps pursuing us, His people, from Adam to Noah, to Abraham and Moses and David, and to Jesus.

Here's the fine print: no Bible expertise is necessary, it costs nothing to participate, there's no assigned outside reading, plus you'll meet other young adults on the same spiritual journey that you're on. All you'll need is a Bible and one hour a week (okay, and Zoom too).

One of the great voices of wisdom in our Church's history was the fifth-century monk, Saint Benedict. His writings on humility offer are an antidote to the epidemic of stress overwhelming most of us.

With candor, humor, and a unique approach to classical art, Father Augustine, a high school teacher and coach, breaks down Saint Benedict's method into twelve steps for finding inner peace in a way that can be applied to anyone's life. Drawing upon his own life experiences, both before and after becoming a Benedictine monk, the author explains every step of humility, illustrating each chapter with color reproductions of monastic art (that he has embellished with comic flourishes). The combination is sure to keep you from taking yourself too seriously―which is already a first step on the path to humility.

Here's the fine print: your only cost to participate is the book itself (here's the Amazon link), and the outside reading is minimal, about 10 pages per week. We'll meet for just one hour a week, on Zoom.

Young Adults Holy Brew

At our April Holy Brew, we'll be joined by Leah Perrault, Catholic speaker and author.

Stay tuned!

Wednesday, March 3 at 7p
Wednesday, April 7 at 7p

We're busy; it's hard to find moments of quiet and peace in our lives, especially quiet time with the Lord.

This is what adoration is: just quiet and peace with the Lord.

As a young adult community, we'll gather together in the Cathedral for quiet prayer with the Lord in adoration in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.

Not sure what to pray about or what to do with this quiet time? We'll have a prayer guide.

Also: we'll have the confessional open, if you'd like to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. (We'll have a guide for that too.)

Service

Stay tuned for future service opportunities with our young adult community.
