Young adults are a varied bunch. They range in age from 18 years old, through the 20s, and continue on until people are done being 39. They might be in college, working, looking for work or parenting at home. They are dating, engaged, married, or single.
This office exists to help support the work of parishes, staff and volunteers who try to reach out and minister to young adults in all those situations around the Diocese of Joliet. We also do some direct work with young adults themselves.
Be in touch if we can be of assistance. Click around on the menu to the left and scroll down to connect with the good things that are happening in our diocese (and beyond).
