Young Adult Ministry

To live without faith, without a heritage to defend, without battling constantly for truth, is not to live but to ‘get along’; we must never just ‘get along’. Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati

Young Adult Ministry of St. Mary’s in Annapolis seeks to provide spiritual, social, and service opportunities for our young parishioners between the ages of 18 and 39 to empower them to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Any questions about Young Adult events, please contact Jacob Blackwell, St. Mary's Coordinator for Youth and Young Adult Ministry at jblackwell@stmarysannapolis.org.

Young adults are invited to join our community, Anne Arundel Catholic (AAC). AAC consists of several regularly occurring young adult events hosted by St. Mary’s and other parishes in Anne Arundel County. Check out the Anne Arundel Catholic Facebook page for the latest events at
