Helping you grow closer to Christ!  We’re glad you’re here!

Young Adults are hard-wired for connection, connection to one another and connection to Jesus, and we want to help you get connected to those people and resources that can help you grow in your faith.  Take a look around – there are lots of resources and opportunities for growth!

  • Called & Gifted – God is calling you to a unique purpose in life – a work of love that only you can do! Discern your charisms (spiritual gifts) and begin to discern God’s call. You have received gifts in Baptism and Confirmation through which God intends His love to reach others. Come and discover these charisms in you!  Called & Gifted is a collaboration between Our Lady of Lourdes and St. John Vianney and is designed to help Christians discover their spiritual gifts.  Offered every fall – click here for more information.
