- "If we want it to have real meaning and fulfillment, as you want and as you deserve, I say to each one of you, 'Put on faith' .... it will have a compass to show you the way ... The Church needs you, your enthusiasm, your creativity and the joy that is so characteristic of you." " ; Pope Francis, World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil

- "God is raising up a generation of 'Young Lions' - serving Him with such ferocity .... its infectious." - Anonymous

Young and gifted, what a combination! ... you are a reflection of God; He wants to gift you even more and help you to be the best person you can be ... He is the Church. Lean on Him for your support network :)

This page seeks to encourage our young adults and provide them with a few tools, resources, and links. Enjoy!

Archdiocese of Washington Young Adult Resources
http://www.adw.org/young-adult-ministry

The Archdiocese of Washington actually has a lot of programs geared toward your age range - check out this link with Theology on Tap, Christ in the City, Information on World Youth Day (the last one was in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), live feeds, and more. Let your Youth Ministry leader know if you want to attend any of these events!


Busted Halo Young Adult Webzine
http://www.bustedhalo.com

OK, so I don't know how I feel about the name "Busted Halo" (though we all fall short in trying to straighten our "Halo", true) ..... we are all "saints in the making", right ? ... this site actually has a lot of cool content ... its not your average online magazine; check it out! 

Xt3 and Foursquare Social Media
http://www.xt3.com

Social media has even gotten the attention of the Catholic Faith. Xt3 (or Christ in the Third Millennium) is just one out of many social networks geared towards Catholics, and Young Adults in general. See video below: 


As an individual parish, our social media campaign has been revamped! Like Us on our new Facebook page, contact us on Twitter, listen to our new Youtube channel ... you can even check us out on Foursquare Check-Ins. Remember to share with a friend :)


Daily Word
http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/

Whatever you do, stay close to God through His Daily Word. The Catholic Church makes it easy - 1st Reading, 2nd Reading (on special days like Sunday and other Holy Days of Obligation), and Gospel .... Here's a link to be encouraged daily.


National Black Catholic Congress (Young Adult)
http://www.nbccongress.org/catholic-youth/

The NBCC posts a bimonthly newsletter with a section strictly for Young Adults. The articles are written from a personal perspective and really interesting. This month's article is about Stepping: More than Entertainment. While you are at it, take a look at their Media Center with pics from their Young Adult Conference and workshops. Would you like to attend a conference? Let us know :)

There are many other resources available to you. Want a job working to promote Young Adult Ministry ? Looking for scholarships ? Interested in Leadership ? Its out there, just ask and we'll help you search.


It's your forum. We want to support you as we all grow in the faith. Send a comment or Tweet to Anacostias Catholic or any other YA Coordinator if you have any other suggestions.

Pax vobis -Peace in Christ !


Young Adults (18-35)
