Youth and Young Adults

Large numbers of Speak Up participants told of their profound concern that so many youth and young adults are not present at Sunday Mass, are not active in the parish, or have abandoned their faith.

They expressed their hope that youth and young adults will have the benefits of a good education and a good moral and spiritual formation to guide them through life and to make the world a better place. 

Speak Up participants called on the Church to respond with the best of its resources to meet the needs of youth and young adults with opportunities, time, and places within the parish to gather, pray, and discuss the challenges they face during these growth-filled years.
