Young Adult Ministry at St. Alphonsus
Due to our location in the Lakeview neighborhood, St. Alphonsus is a hub for Young Adult Ministry in Chicago. We offer a number of seasonal and ongoing opportunities for social connections and spiritual development.
The Young Adult Ministry is coordinated by a Board. Its members are Megan Bowen, Matt Mulka, and Pete Mockaitis. You can reach them here.
There is also a monthly newsletter, featuring the latest activities. You can subscribe to it by clicking the Newletter link on the left side of this page.
A great way to connect with others is to join the monthly Cocktails After Church group (fourth Sunday of the month), which goes to a local establishment for drinks and dinner after the 5:00 PM Sunday mass.
Views from the Veranda
Every July, Young Adult Ministry organizes Views from the Veranda. These Tuesday sessions feature fantastic speakers on a variety of topics, along with socializing each week. In June, the upcoming schedule of speakers will be available on the web site and in the bulletin.
There are two retreats offered each year.
- A Fall one-day retreat, held the weekend before Thanksgiving.
- There is also a Lenten overnight retreat. Check the web site and the bulletin in March for details about 2012.
