JP2 Young Adults

JP2 Young Adults

Inspired by Saint John Paul II, we seek to be an intentional community that walks with each other on the journey towards Jesus Christ and to be a witness to those around us.

Growing in faith and community

JP2 Young Adults is a community of young adults (18-39ish) of the Jefferson City area, based out of the Cathedral of Saint Joseph.

We gather with a mission of building intentional relationships, we aim to grow closer to Christ, His Church, and each other through small groups and social events.

JP2 Young Adults will be supporting the Biking for Babies missionaries as they journey through Jefferson City on their way to St. Louis for their annual Celebration of Life event.  The missionaries will attend Mass at the Cathedral and would love to visit with any and all people and share their passion for their mission to build a Culture of Life amidst our nation's current war on human dignity. A meal will follow Mass.

Small Group Ministry for Young Adults

The model of discipleship Christ gave us in his formation of the Apostles shows the importance of community and life-sharing for a thriving spiritual life. Through small groups, we seek to build our young adult community through friendship with each other and faith formation in a group setting.

Small Group Update

Small Groups are on hiatus for the summer. We will start discussing Small Groups for the fall at the Summer BBQ, so be ready for sign ups! JP2 Young Adults is ALWAYS looking for new small group leaders. Please prayerfully consider being a leader or co-leader for this fall. Contact Joe Reinkemeyer (660-888-3765) with any questions!

Engagement Survey

This survey helps us to improve the small group ministry and JP2 Young Adults as a whole.  This Survey only takes a few minutes.
