Young Adult Ministry

Thanks to THE OFFICE OF CATHOLIC YOUTH (OCY) for leading Young Adult Ministry into an engaging and exciting present and future! 


The OCY is focused on cultivating relationships and providing support to those who minister to young people in parish communities within the Archdiocese of Toronto.


The OCY vision is to form youth and young adults into Christian leaders who come to know Christ, deepen their relationship with Him, and are transformed into one of His faith-filled disciples - evangelize, gather, catechize, and send forth.


The area of focus for young adults is defined as students and young professionals ages 18-35.

for the Youth of St. John of the Cross Parish:

To evangelize and form young disciples that strive to know, love and serve God and His Church.
That the youth act with virtue, fueled by the Sacraments and growing in daily personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Such that in their adulthood, they are confident and convicted in deep Catholic faith, so they may glorify and defend Our Lord in the public arena and inspire others just as the early Christians did under persecution, building the Kingdom.
