St. Joe’s is dedicated to welcoming all ages and has specific programming for young adults, including university and graduate students.

All those in their late teens (post HS), twenties, and thirties are invited.

St. Joe’s journeys with a variety of young adults…those in college and university…those in the working world…those looking for work…those from Ottawa and those who arrived last week in the Nation’s capital.  We gather young adults for spiritual, social, and service activities as well as help integrate them into the life of the parish.

Young adults at St. Joe’s are involved in every aspect of life here at the Parish…they sit on the Parish Council, they serve as ministers at Mass .  Young adults serve in ministries like Refugee Outreach, History Committee, and the St. Joe’s Supper Table.  Young adults serve as catechists for Children’s Liturgy of the Word and preparation for 1st Communion.  Young adults are everywhere and are an integral part of our community.  All are welcome.  We look forward to seeing you.

Current Happenings…

University & Young Adult Mass WILL RESUME SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2018; 7:00 PM
University Students and Young Adults are welcome to attend the Sunday Evening 7:00 PM Mass. We do take off a couple of weeks over the Christmas break so be sure to check the calendar. Young adults (including students) take the lead for all liturgical roles (choir, readers, Eucharistic ministers, greeters, etc). Sign-ups are passed around each week so folks can sign up to help out for the next week. Hospitality (cookies, chips,etc) is present after each Mass.
