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: “Peter: Cornerstone of Catholicism,” by Dr. Tim Gray.

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, adoration with worship music, benediction, and opportunities for confession. Afterwards, we will head to the parish hall for food and fellowship!

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. Francis at 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, June 17th - 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.

Save the Date for our July Praise Mass on Sunday, July 22nd, to be followed by a fun summer BBQ! See below for more details.

Social and Service Events

  • Saturday, June 16th - Outdoor Movie Night – Join Discipleship for an Outdoor Movie Night on Jose’s rooftop deck in Fed Hill! The event will start at 8 PM.

  • Sunday, July 22nd - Celebrate Summer! BBQ & Bonfire – Save the Date for a cookout with Discipleship! After attending the 5:30 PM Praise Mass together, we will head over by the parish hall for a party in the courtyard with food, drinks, music, lawn games, a bonfire and more!! More details to follow. If you have any questions, please contact Tony at


  • Saturday, July 28th - Service Event – Discipleship will be joining St. Joe’s Cockeysville as they serve lunch to women and children at Sarah’s Hope in Baltimore. We will be meeting at 10 AM at St. Joe’s (105 Church Ln, Cockeysville, MD 21030) and carpooling from there. Since you will be working with children, it is required that you complete VIRTUS training and a background check - it takes a little time, but can be completed online at no cost to you (the entire process takes about 2 hours). If you are interested, please e-mail Theresa at, and she will send you all the information you need. Since this process takes some time, please let her know by the end of June!

Do You Love Music?
