Discern your vocation

Each of us is called to live life to the fullest according to God’s will. We are all called to holiness, and how this is played out in our lives is different and called our “vocation.” If you are seeking to learn more about what your vocation might be, start here.

Find a Spiritual Director

The purpose of Spiritual Direction is to grow in holiness and strengthen one’s relationship with God. A Spiritual Director acts as a guide, counselor, and friend, focusing on the directee’s relationship with God to deepen their prayer life through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Diocese of Bridgeport collaborates with Fairfield University Murphy Center to promote spiritual direction.

St. Ed’s Young Adult Ministry is guided by three principles of mission:

1. To enlighten one’s faith with charity and hope.
2. To empower the future of the Church with the spiritual tools of the past and present.
3. To engage the hearts of all Catholic young adults in search of faith and community.

Bound by this mission, her members create opportunities for social and most importantly spiritual growth within the community.

St. Ed’s Young Adult Ministry provides monthly social events, such as BBQs, karaoke nights, holiday parties, and theme nights that spark interest in our community. From here, her leaders know this is only the start, and desiring a build for deeper community, extends themselves through spiritual invitations to join Bible studies, Adoration, and community Masses. Faith does not stop in the Church nor at an event, but is woven within the hearts of St. Ed’s Young Adult leaders and their mission to find those who desire those same principles of mission in this way.

You’re invited to connect with us through our website, https://stedsyoungadults.webnode.page/. Here, you can find our social media pages and Flocknote to stay up-to-date on all things St. Ed’s Young Adult Ministry related.

Description: The St. Aloysius Young Adult Ministry invites those aged 18-39 to come together and form a community to grow in their faith. Whether you are seeking to deepen your faith through Bible study, discussion, or simply connecting with other young adults in the church, our young adult ministry hopes to offer you a place to do so.

We have a three-prong approach to the ministry here:

College Ministry During school breaks and summer there are communal events including adoration, hikes, Bible study, and weekly social gatherings. Care packages are sent to college students in the Fall & the Spring to keep them rooted in the parish community and to encourage them to keep their faith alive. Co-coordinated by Danielle Mank (Fairfield University student) & Chris Otis (High School Youth Minister).

Post-College Young Professional – Bi-weekly Bible Study, and other events, Mission Trips, Theology on Tap, and Adoration. Co-coordinated by Charlotte Engel (Young Adult professional).

Young Adult Couples For those who are dating, engaged, and married. Monthly opportunities to build community through service projects and social gatherings such as Friendsgiving, game nights, and dinners out on the town. Co-coordinated by Molly & Larry Luppi (Young Married Couple).

This group is for Young Adults who desire to grow in their Catholic faith and who are seeking connection
Young Adults who are looking to link their everyday challenges with solutions that have been given to us through the teachings of our Lord.

Founded a couple of years ago after Msgr. Walter heard from some of our young adults who were working hard – many commuters – who didn’t have a lot of free time, but who really wanted a deeper relationship with their faith and their peers. “So I invited them to 12 noon Mass on the first weekend of every month, lunch at a diner afterward – just to chat, and catch up on their thoughts and needs. I was interested to hear how this group believes strongly in inclusivity, has a great affection for Pope Francis, an interest in understanding scripture, service relief missions, and connecting with their peers.”
