Based on the results of the Discipleship Maker Index (DMI) that was offered in the spring of this year, seeing an increase in young adult involvement is the top priority of the archdiocese. In response, the All Things New Team, the Office of Young Adult Ministry and the Young Adult Ministry Subcommittee have created a survey to gather feedback from young adults.

All young adults whether single, discerning, married, priest or religious, with or without children, ages 18-39 are encouraged to fill out the survey. Here they may anonymously share their beliefs and interests, their needs, their experience in parishes, and their hopes for the future if the church in St. Louis.

Responses are due by September 12th with a report being published in October.

Watch:  The Woman. In the Gospels we hear Jesus refer to his mother Mary as "Woman." This reference should draw our attention to both Genesis and Revelation. But who is this "Woman," and why is she so central to salvation history? This powerful film presents the Catholic teaching about Mary and her important role in the life of the Church today. On this Solemnity of the Assumption, let us ponder Mary's role in our own lives!

Learn:  “The Bible and the Virgin Mary: Episode 11: The Assumption”. In this session of "The Bible and the Virgin," we explore both the teaching of Mary's Assumption and the identity of the mysterious woman in the book of Revelation. This episode also reveals how John's apocalyptic visions are the dramatic fulfillment of the promise God made back in the Garden of Eden!

Listen:  "Mary: The Indispensable Mother of God by Tim Staples" In this Lighthouse Talk, Tim Staples explains the incredible impact that the Church's understanding of Mary has on our spiritual lives, and the profound way that Marian doctrines elevate the faith. With his memorable insights and humor, Tim shows how correct knowledge of our humble Mother reveals our own identity in Christ and empowers us to say "Yes" to God!
