Young Adult Ministry

St. Joseph’s has specific programming for young adults (all those in their late teens (post HS), twenties, and thirties), including university and graduate students.

We welcome those who are new to Ottawa, whether you have recently moved or are attending university.  We gather for spiritual, social, and service activities as well as help integrate you into the life of the parish so that St. Joseph’s can be your “faith home away from home.”

Interested in getting involved? Curious about what is going on at the parish for Young Adults? Feel free to reach out to our Young Adult Ministry & Faith Formation Coordinator Paul Dansereau @:

[email protected] or 613-233-4095 x 235.










          University Students and Young Adults are welcome to attend the Sunday Evening 7:00 PM Mass. Our young adults and students take the lead in a number of liturgical roles and there is a brief gathering after each mass with food and drinks. University Mass stops for a few weeks over the Christmas break so be sure to check the calendar.
