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.

Our Events

Stay tuned for future small group opportunities.

Stay tuned!

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 Chapel for some 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

Often residents move in to Dwelling Place properties from shelters or areas of housing insecurity, and come in with very little.

Welcome Home Baskets is a collection created to welcome these new residents with a gift, and hand-written letter reading, "Welcome Home."

As a young adult community, we will collect the following items: laundry detergent, laundry baskets, pillows and pillowcases, bath towels, toothbrushes and toothpaste, toilet paper, sponges, disinfecting spray, window cleaner, dish soap, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.

To participate, go to the Amazon wish list for this project and the items will be shipped directly to Dwelling Place.

A retreat is a time to step back from the busyness of life to spend moments in prayer, quiet, reflection and discussion.

So we invite you to join us for our Advent day of retreat on Saturday, December 5. This retreat will be online.

Our theme for this retreat is hope.

What is hope? In these challenging times, how do we live as hopeful people? What can the holy season of Advent teach us about hope?

We will hear talks from guest speakers, will have time to meet and discuss life and faith with other young adults, and we'll save some time for quiet, prayer, and stillness.
