HNOJ Young Adults

The Young Adult Community at HNOJ

HNOJ Young Adults is Holy Name’s young adult community. We offer opportunities uniquely for 21-39-year-olds to grow in knowledge and relationship with Christ. Additionally, we create environments to grow in fellowship. We don’t just hang out, we build deeps relationships with each other. Read up on our offerings below. We are sincerely excited to meet you! 

Never miss a thing! Please sign up for email updates below and join our group on Facebook. This way, you’ll get updated on things as they happen!

Pints and the Padre 

Every third Wednesday, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Old Church/Choir Room

Pints and the Padre is our monthly event where we grab our favorite adult beverage with our favorite current associate pastor and discuss theology. Fr. Colin gives a presentation on a topic with a related excerpt from a book we (hopefully!) read in the past month. It's then opened up to ask Padre any questions we have about the presentation, Catholicism, or any other related burning questions.  

You do not have to do the reading to attend this event. We aim to format the event so anyone can come to this event and leave feeling fed and not lost.

Monthly Social 

First Wednesday of the month, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Usually the Old Church/Choir Room

Come and hang out with the young adult community at HNOJ! This is a free form night to be yourself and be social with others who are also striving for holiness. 

Bring a board game, a theological topic or anything else you can think of that would make the evening fun! Just make sure to double-check with Emily beforehand. 

10/15 update: We are thinking about doing outdoor sports during the winter!

YA Adoration 

Every Tuesday, 7. – 9 p.m.
Main Church

This is our weekly gathering to pray before the Blessed Sacrament while it is exposed in the main church. It’s a peaceful time to sit quietly with the Lord or talk to Him about that one really difficult thing you’ve needed to pray about for a while. Come when you can and leave when you need. 

Emily will join the group at about 8:30 p.m. 


Small Groups 

COMING SOON! HNOJYA are conspiring to create small groups within our YA community. If you are interested in joining a small group or becoming a leader, please contact Emily
