Young Adult Ministry


Looking to grow in your faith while connecting with other young adults? Discipleship strives to bring together all local Catholics, ages 21 to 35, to share in faith, service, and fun! We host weekly Bible studies and monthly worship, service, and social events.

Join The Immaculate Conception Discipleship Group on Facebook and/or contact Amy at to be added to our e-mail list.

You can also subscribe to our Google Calendar to keep up to date with our events.

Weekly Bible Study

Our weekly Bible study sessions are held every Wednesday at 7 PM in the Nelligan room, located in the Parish Office Building. We hope that you will take a break from your busy work week and join us for a time of discussion, prayer, and spiritual growth!

Our current study series is: “Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother,” by Dr. Edward Sri.

Please note: Bible Study will be canceled on Wednesday, August 15th. Instead, we encourage you to attend evening Mass in celebration of the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Worship Night

Discipleship’s Worship Nights are held regularly on the second Saturday of every month. Our next Worship Night will be Saturday, July 14th, at 7 PM in the main church. We will have a guest speaker, Fr. Leo Camurati, adoration with worship music, benediction, and opportunities for confession. Afterwards, we will head to the parish hall courtyard for an outdoor movie (weather permitting), food and fellowship!

Save the Date for our August Worship Night on Saturday, August 11th, at 7 PM.

Praise Mass

Do you feel called to serve during Mass? We’d love for more young adults to partake in the Mass by offering Holy Communion, reading the Word of God, or being the face of Christ to others through our new Encounter Ministry!

Eucharistic Minister/Lector: If you are interested in being trained, please contact Fr. Joe Barr  for more details. You can request to serve every 3rd Sunday of the month during the 5:30 PM Praise Mass with other young adults, and/or choose to be randomly assigned to various masses.

Encounter Ministry: The Encounter Ministry is a new initiative, which encompasses the tasks of greeting, handing out song sheets, seating people, doing the collection, handing out bulletins, etc. The goal is to use these “tasks” as opportunities to BE CHRIST to the congregation! Please contact Lauren McKeegan for more details on this exciting new ministry.

Sunday, July 22nd - Praise Mass – Join Discipleship for Mass at 5:30 PM in the main church! We typically sit towards the front near the center aisle. If you have been trained at Immaculate Conception as a Eucharistic Minister or lector, we encourage you to sign-up for this Mass in advance, or ask if any help is needed when you arrive. Also, if you’ve been trained as an Encounter Minister, please check in when you arrive to see if you can assist in any way. After Mass, we will head over to the parish hall courtyard for a summer cookout! See below for details.

Save the Date for our August Praise Mass on Sunday, August 19th, at 5:30 PM.
