In 2009, Archbishop Daniel Buechlein + named St. John’s as a parish hub for young adult ministry, and since that time St. John's has had a growing and vibrant young adult and college campus ministry with many young adults on fire for the Lord and His Holy Catholic Church. St. John’s also serves as the parish home for IUPUI (Indiana University Purdue University- Indianapolis). Check out the following pages to learn how you can become more involved in young adult ministry.
Join the young adult and college student community for a monthly Sunday social usually following the 7pm Mass at St. John's. This is a great way to meet others in the community and join in for some faith, fellowship and fun!
