Our Mission

Our mission as the Diocesan Young Adult Core Team is to help bring about a greater awareness of young adult activity and to assist those who facilitate young adult ministry in the Catholic Church in New Hampshire. We look to do this through prayer, promoting events, providing resources, supporting priests and young adults, and participating in young adult events. It is our prayer that all young adults in the Church find their place among God’s people.

We, as Catholic young adults, adhere to the teachings of the Church including the teachings on the sacraments, contraception, the sanctity of life, and papal infallibility. As Core Team members, we strive to live holy and fulfilling lives.
