Youth & Young Adults of South Carolina

There are many opportunities to touch the lives of youth and young adults, and these should be seen as moments for evangelizing outreach. Some of these may require a change in the way we approach evangelization so our outreach is more dynamic, taking the Church into the community where the youth & young adults gather rather than waiting for these men and women to come to us.

In ministry with our young adults, several important topics we emphasize: the formation of conscience, education for love, vocational discernment, Christian involvement in society, missionary responsibility in the world, the relationship between faith and reason, the existence and meaning of God, the problem of evil, the Church, the objective moral order in relation to personal subjectivity, the relationship between man and woman, and the social doctrine of the Church.

Our Goals

  • To connect young adults with Jesus Christ through spiritual formation/direction, religious education/formation, and vocational discernment. To connect young adults to the Church through evangelizing outreach, formation of the faith community, and helping to find their place in the church.                                                       

  • To connect young adults with the mission of the Church in the world through forming a Christian conscience, educating and developing leaders for the present and future.                                                                                                                                

  • To connect young adults with a peer community through developing peer leadership and identifying a young adult team for the purpose of forming faith communities of peers.                                                                                                                         

Challenges                                                                                                                                                 

  • Young adults have been captivated by the consumerism and materialism of the society in which they grew up and have became apathetic and cynical.                       

  • Young adulthood is sometimes a world of boredom, disillusionment, and indifference to the Church.                                                                                                    

  • Young adults need a non-threatening place where they can freely express their questions, doubts, and even disagreements with the Church and where the teachings of the Church can be clearly articulated and related to their experience.   

  • Young adults make some of the most important decisions in their lives about their Christian vocation, their career, and their choice of spouse.
