15 Catholic young adults who inspire us, 2017

Read about any one of these active young adult Catholics and be inspired. The millennial generation, born between 1982 and 2000, is usually less involved in parish life and might not even believe in God, but Arkansas Catholic has found countless examples of young adults who are connected to Christ and their faith.

For these profiles, we focused on Catholics 18 to 30 years old (born 1987 to 1999). We sought out recommendations and interviewed 15 young adults who are doing exceptional work in their schools, parishes and ministries full time, part time or even as volunteers. They are single, married, parents and college students.


Profiles in this section were written by Malea Hargett, Aprille Hanson, Maryanne Meyerriecks, Dwain Hebda and Alesia Schaefer.
