Mission Statement:

Mount Saint Peter’s Young Adult Ministry seeks to be attentive to the spiritual needs of its 20-30 something single or married young adults.  Recognizing that young adults have varied needs, we seek to enhance their faith through sacramental preparation programs, speakers’ series on pertinent topics, spiritual direction, and faith-sharing/prayer gatherings.  Involvement  in pastoral council, liturgical ministries, youth ministry, service opportunities, as well as parish events is integral to the faith development of Mt. St. Peter’s Young Adults

Aware of the role that technology plays in our young adults’ lives, opportunities to enrich young adult’s faith are offered through Mount Saint Peter’s Young Adult  web page which offers a number of selections in the area of prayer and reflection, podcasts on a variety of current topics, links to social justice issues, and opportunities for service.

Dreams and Visions

“Thus says the Lord: I will pour out my spirit upon all mankind. Your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall see visions.”
The coming of the Spirit should fill us with dreams and visions of a better world.
Let us dream, in the Spirit, of a classless society in which all people are regarded and treated as equals.

Let us dream, in the Spirit, of a nonviolent world in which there is no war, no terrorist attacks on innocent people, no murder, and no death penalty.

Let us dream, in the Spirit, of a world of economic justice in which all people have their basic needs met, and no one lives in poverty, hunger, or homelessness.
Let us dream, in the Spirit, of a world of love, forgiveness, and service.
Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.” May the Spirit of God guide us to end the suffering we have brought on ourselves and “unite the faces and nations on earth to proclaim your glory.”The People of God believes that it is led by the Spirit of the Lord, who fills the earth.

Motivated by this faith, it labors to decipher authentic signs of God’s presence and purpose in the happenings, needs, and desires in which this People has a part along with other men of our age.

For faith throws a new light on everything, manifests God’s design for man’s total vocation, and thus directs the mind to solutions which are fully human.

The Daily Examen

The Daily Examen is a technique of prayerful reflection on the events of the day in order to detect God’s presence and discern his direction for us.  The Examen is an ancient practice in the Church that can help us see God’s hand at work in our whole experience.
The method presented here is adapted from a technique described by Ignatius Loyola in his Spiritual Exercises. St. Ignatius thought that the Examen was a gift that came directly from God, and that God wanted it to be shared as widely as possible. One of the few rules of prayer that Ignatius made for the Jesuit order was the requirement that Jesuits practice the Examen twice daily—at noon and at the end of the day. It’s a habit that Jesuits, and many other Christians, practice to this day.
This is a version of the five-step Daily Examen that St. Ignatius practiced.
1. Become aware of God’s presence.
2. Review the day with gratitude.
3. Pay attention to your emotions.
4. Choose one feature of the day and pray from it.
5. Look toward tomorrow.

YARM

YARM (Young Adults Responders in Ministry)  Why not consider signing up for some special duty parish ministry.  Service projects come up unexpectedly and can require some manual labor, or some ministry of presence and compassion.  Especially during these challenging economic times, our neighbors and parishioners are often calling in "need."  Maybe they need some strong arms to help with some manual housework.  Maybe they need someone to run an errand.  Maybe they are lonely from long winter days, kept inside their homes.  Maybe they need someone to help move some furniture for them, etc., etc. 

If you are willing and able to help parish friends who are facing tough and challenging situations, please call Sr. Valerie.  Remember many hands make light labor.  If enough ministers call, no one person will be overburdened.  Besides, lightening the burden of one of us, lightens the burdens of all of us. 

Christ has no body now, but yours.  No hands no feet on earth, but yours.  Yours are the eyes through which Christ looks compassion into the world.
