The Young Adult Ministry of the Oak Park Parishes is in an exploratory phase as we consider the needs of our young adult community. If you are an adult 21 or older, we would love to meet, get to know you, and hear how you would like to be involved.

We are excited to share with you a developing Adult Youth Ministry Team (included will be the teen’s input) to help create a Mission and Vision for our Oak Park Catholic Youth Ministry. Our mission will consist of creative ways to nurture our young parishioners’ spiritual growth, providing them with a supportive community where they can deepen their faith, build meaningful relationships, and discover their unique gifts and talents. Another goal is to have the Adult Youth Ministry team assist with the various engaging activities offered to the teens.

If you are interested in learning more about our developing Youth Ministry program or would like to get involved as a volunteer, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at, or at 708-370-3674. Your participation and support are invaluable as we continue to nurture this and the next generation of faithful disciples.

Thank you for your dedication to our Oak Park Catholic church community and for your prayers for our Youth Ministry.
