Mission Statement:

The Young Adult Ministry Board (YAMB) is a new ministry that was launch on October 28th, 2012, to help our young brothers and sisters of our parish community reconnect with their Lord our God and Savior Jesus Christ, so that they can embrace Him again with open arms and never let him go. This is done by expressing your needs and concerns through fellowship with Body and Blood of Christ. We welcome college student, young professionals, and single and young married couples to join us.


To help one another recognize and acknowledge our gifts, talents, treasure and strength that our Lord God has given us to share with our parish community through service work and in other type of work we do.
