Young Adult Ministry

DISCIPLESHIP

Looking to grow in your faith while connecting with other young adults/professionals? 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 youngadult@theimmaculate.org 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, “Who Am I to Judge: Responding to Relativism with Logic and Love,” by Dr. Edward Sri.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Next week, we will be holding our weekly Bible Study on Thursday, November 15th. On Wednesday, November 14th, we encourage you to attend the Ecumenical Prayer Service hosted at 7 PM in the church. This will include scripture, prayer and singing, in thanksgiving to God for our blessings.
  • We will not be holding Bible Study on Wednesday, November 21st, due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
  • We will not be holding Bible Study on Wednesday, December 5th. Instead, we encourage you to attend the church’s Advent Reconciliation Service, at 7 PM in the church 
 

Worship Night

Discipleship’s Worship Nights are held regularly on the second Saturday of every month. Our next Worship Night will be this Saturday, November 10th, at 7 PM in the main church! Jeff Griffin, the Executive Director at The Franciscan Center of Baltimore, will be speaking to us about how we can help the homeless. His talk will be followed by adoration with worship music, benediction, and opportunities to go to confession.

Afterwards, we will head to a nearby grocery store for a Scavenger Hunt to gather food for Immaculate’s ACTC Thanksgiving Bag Collection. We’ll be breaking into teams and competing to see who can find all the items on their list first! We are asking for donations in advance to cover the cost of the food and will be collecting donations at Bible Study this Wednesday, November 7th, and the night of the event. It’s about $25 per dinner bag; the more we raise, the more Thanksgiving dinners we can give to over 2,000 hungry families in the Baltimore area. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!! RSVP’s are due to Anthony at anthonyefalbo@yahoo.com, or on our Facebook page, by this Friday, October 9th.

Save the Date: Our December Worship Night will be held Saturday, December 8th, in conjunction with our annual Christmas party. More details to follow.

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 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 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.

  • Sunday, November 18th - Praise Mass – Join Discipleship for Mass at 5:30 PM in the main church! We typically sit towards the front to the right. 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.
 

Social and Service Events

From attending community events such as Orioles games and Relay for Life to serving at places like Our Daily Bread and local pregnancy centers, Discipleship’s social and service events offer a variety of ways to get involved and serve others. To stay up to date on Discipleship’s latest events, please join The Immaculate Conception Discipleship Group on Facebook, subscribe to our Google Calendar, or ask to be added to our e-mail list.

Volunteer Opportunities

Transform Your Life!

Discipleship has committed to supporting Immaculate Conception’s perpetual adoration chapel, so it can continue to stay open 24-7! Volunteers can sign up as needed to ensure that a worshiper is there each Sunday from 2-3 PM. If you are interested, please contact Jose at ilaoforscience@gmail.com. Thank you so much for your help!


If you would like to help, but prefer signing up for another time as a full-time or substitute adorer, you can sign-up here. If you want to pair up with another Discipleship member, please let us know and we will put you in touch with anyone interested in the same time. The Adoration Chapel is a wonderful blessing to our community and we want to keep it open! Come spend time with Jesus, grow in friendship with Him, and watch Him change your life!!! More information on Immaculate Conception’s Adoration Chapel can be found here.
