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.

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.
