Young Adults and the Catholic Fellowship of NYC

  We are a Catholic Young Adult group serving Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church for professionals in their 20s, 30s and 40s. We welcome everyone. Our events being social, spiritual, and community oriented are intended to be fun and inspiring. Most importantly, we hope that people leave each event being touched by the Holy Spirit.
      Our mission is to bring young adults closer to God and Church as well as uniting young adults to promote further good. We adhere to the call of Jesus Christ in these modern times by seeking to establish camaraderie, meeting the needs of the communities around us, and strengthening our faith. We support activiites at Mount Carmel, including the monthly Young Adult Mass, third Sundays at 5 PM.
