One of the pillars of the Co-Cathedral Young Adults (C-YA) is education, that is, continuing to build on our knowledge of the faith. A strong knowledge of the faith is one that never stops growing.
Young adults in our culture are continually bombarded with situations or messages that question our faith. These situations call for positive, loving responses. Vatican II's document, "Lumen Gentium" reminds us that our vocation, whether married or single, is to transform the world by imaging Christ in our relationships, activities, and interactions. By increasing our knowledge of the faith, and sharing it in positive, life-giving interactions, we are sharing the light of Christ.
By understanding the teachings of our faith, we continue to inform our conscience. This transforms the moral decisions we make, whether it's life-altering decisions, or the everyday decisions. We grow to understand what God asks of us, what makes us more loving disciples. We then have the capability to transform the society we live in, including the arts, media, technology, politics, science, world relations, and so on.
How does the Co-Cathedral Young Adults provide opportunities for growth?
We offer national programs like "Theology on Tap," bible studies, faith-based book studies, and promote and participate in opportunities from other parishes, and the archdiocese, and national level events, such as Cafe Catholica, Christ in the City, diocesan and national young adult conferences/workshops.
