The Diocese of Grand Rapids supports and strengthens those who evangelize and accompany young adults as they encounter and follow Jesus Christ as missionary disciples.
The Office for Family, Youth and Young Adult Ministries does this by:
- Forming, equipping, and supporting parish and organizational leaders in their ministry with young adults,
- Modeling and fostering a ministry of accompaniment among young adults of all cultures, languages, socioeconomic and geographic realities,
- Forming and supporting young adult Catholics as they witness to Jesus Christ in their daily lives.
