We are a group of Seattle area young adults in our twenties and thirties who come together to share our Catholic faith. Each month we gather for a spirituality event, a service event, and a social event. We are always happy to meet new people. Please consider joining us for an upcoming event!


Sunday Evening Advent Reflections
Starting on Sunday, November 30, the young adults will meet in the Rectory Parlors at 7pm on each Sunday in Advent. Come for a quiet reflection on the meaning of this season that is too often overlooked amidst the busyness and consumerism of December. To commemorate and learn from a time when the Jewish people awaited the Messiah, we will explore what it means to invite Christ into our lives today. We will read scripture using lectio divina, listen to an Advent talk from Franciscan Fr. Richard Rohr, and discuss the implication for our everyday lives. Light snacks will be provided.

Young Adult Advent Challenge: Collect 2,015 Pairs of Socks for People Experiencing Homelessness!
Help is needed to staff a collection booth in Coffee Hour after the 8am, 10am, and noon Masses on the four Sundays of Advent Please send an email if you are interested in helping this important ministry.

Third Sunday Wine and Cheese Reception on December 21
Join us in the Rectory Parlors after the 5:30pm Mass (around 6:30pm) on December 21 for some wine, cheese, and Christmas treats! This is a monthly event, so if you can't make it this time, we will meet on January 18.

Greening of the Cathedral on Monday, December 22
The young adults traditionally help to decorate the Cathedral in full Christmas fashion! At 6:30pm on Monday, December 22, we will meet in festive spirits to prepare this sacred space to celebrate Christmas. Pizza will be provided for your efforts! RSVP is required: please send an email if you are interested. More information is available on Facebook .

First Friday Taize and Dinner on January 2
Come to the Cathedral at 6:30 for Taizé, a meditative and powerful prayer service. Afterwards, we'll meet at the north entrance of the Cathedral to decide on a local spot for dinner.

Service Event at Recovery Café on January 17
On Saturday, January 17, the young adults will be making and serving dinner at Recovery Café. Recovery Café is a supportive community of sobriety for people in recovery, and it provides safe hospitality for its members. The young adults will be volunteering at the monthly Open Mic Night where members are encouraged to share their talents with the community. Please RSVP to youngadults@stjames-cathedral.org if you are interested.
