grow professionally & spiritually in an inclusive community.

We Are YAP.

YAP (Young Adult Professionals) is a community where young adults are accompanied and formed to become the next leaders of their workplaces, communities, and parishes – by connecting with fellow young adults and successful professional mentors.


Our program’s primary purpose to connect young professionals with peers and mentors in their field and help develop leadership skills.


Sometimes it’s simply about connecting. We host social gatherings every month, from trivia nights and bonfires to new-mom meetups.  


We also create unique opportunities for young adults to encounter faith through fresh experiences and grow as a Catholic community. 


We aim to joyfully and regularly help meet the needs of our city, church, and greater community together through volunteer opportunities.

Young adults, you are welcome here! There is nothing formal to join – if you’re here, you ARE YAP. Our simple (and only) goal is to connect you with like-minded professionals, both peers and mentors, to grow as a community.
