Young Adult Ministry


The St. Paul Parish Young Adult Ministry is a community that shares fellowship and has the desire to share their Catholic faith through discussion, Scripture study, prayer, service and social gatherings. Young adults ages 18-39, single, married, with or without children are invited to join.  If you have questions, please contact Michelle May: [email protected] 


Attention Young Adults, Ages 18-39!
The Stark County Catholic Young Adult Ministry Team needs your input!  Young Adult Ministry covers a wide range of ages and life stages, including college students, early professionals, and young parents.  Before planning activities and gatherings, we would like to find out what types of ministry opportunities young adults are seeking and how the church can best serve this age group.  Please use the QR code below to complete a short survey by October 31 to give us your feedback!  The survey should take about 5 minutes and will provide the team with valuable information for planning future young adult opportunities throughout Stark County.  If you have any questions, feel free to reach our team at [email protected].

U.S. Bishops' Prayer for Young Adults

Gracious and Loving God,
Help these young men and women to be a light 

for all the world to see, 
in all the places they live and work. Let their light shine for all peoples: 
for their families, 
for their church communities, 
for their cultures and societies, 
for the economic and political systems, 
for the whole world. 
Coming into the room where the disciples were gathered after the resurrection, 
"Jesus, your son, said: Peace be with you!" (Jn 20:21). 
Make these men and women bearers 

of Christ's peace. 
"Blessed are the peacemakers, 
Teach them the meaning of what was said 

on the mountain: 
for they shall be called sons and daughters of God" (cf. Mt 5:9). 
Send them, Father, as you sent your son:
to free their brothers and sisters from fear and sin. 
We ask this of you, in Christ's name.
