The findings from Phase 1 of the Young Adult Initiative are beautifully summed up in our 2022 Final Report.

The report introduces our original partner parishes and includes identified universal challenges of ministry with young adults, data-based overarching themes, and vignettes that help readers connect their own experiences with those of our partner parishes.

We encourage you to download a copy of the report or order a hard copy using the link below. Let us know what resonated with your own experience, and what you plan to bring into your own parish ministry!
