Young Adult Ministry
YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY
SJB Young Adults welcomes men and women at all stages from college-bound to young parents.
Our group gathers in Savage, MN at least once a month for events and programs.
Together we form disciples who live out the Gospel throughout their journey and according to their needs.
SJB Young Adults is built on 4 pillars:
Christian friendship and involvement in the community
Prayer and a deeper spiritual and sacramental life
Learning about our faith including vocation, mission and apologetics
Leadership and service in the community

Young Couples and Parents
To foster deep Christian fellowship, formation and support specifically for young spouses and parents. Many of the opportunities for the young adult and the young spouse and parent are the same! This would also include a young mothers small group, social opportunities with childcare, and formation and support specifically for those that are married or parents.

Are You Called?
The Office of Vocations helps men and women discern their vocation through counsel, events, prayer and more. Is God calling you to become a priest, brother, sister or deacon?
Cana Family Institute
The Cana Experience is specifically designed for parents of young children, helping them to fulfill their calling to marriage and parenthood in all its fullness. During the school year there are small group programs such as The Temperament God Gave You and Mothers of Young Children.
