Welcome to St. Matthew Young Adult Ministry!

Young Adult Life Ministry provides young adults (20s–30s) single or married opportunities to grow in their faith and be active in the St. Matthew community through spiritual, service, and social activities. We welcome all young adults, members or non-members of St. Matthew, to join us for our events.

7 to 8 pm
Virtual Event

We have all felt the stress of these past months of virtual learning, lost experiences – hard enough as an adult trying to manage it all for ourselves, let alone for our children.  Parents are invited to a zoom session with speaker Art Bennett, CEO of Catholic Charities in Arlington and a well known licensed marriage and family therapist as we explore ways to truly allow the PEACE of this season help us.  Register here to receive the zoom invitation.
