Young Adults' Group

Home > Ministries > Young Adults' Group

Hello, friend!  Welcome to St. Dominic's YAG!  We're young adults radiating the joy of the gospel in the heart of the city through prayer, study, service, and community. We've been around since 1989 and currently have over 400 active young adults in our community... not counting you once you come and check us out. You can find us at 7:30pm on Wednesdays or after the 5:30pm Sunday Mass. Join our Facebook page or subscribe to our weekly email (see below) to get the most comprehensive digest of our events. For everything else, get in touch with us at youngadults@stdominics.org. †

Wednesday Nights

Wednesday Night Talk

The core activity for the Young Adults is our weekly Wednesday night meeting held at 7:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall (unless otherwise noted). Meetings are primarily educational in nature and meant to help people better understand some aspect of the Catholic faith. We draw speakers from within the young adult community, the parish, and the Dominican community, as well as outside speakers. All are welcome, and if you're attending your first meeting, let the greeters know, so they can get to know you and introduce you to others!


Annual Yosemite Trip - Glacier Point

We plan a variety of social events that offer opportunities for fun and fellowship several times each and every month:

  • Monthly dinners
  • Quarterly happy hours
  • Quarterly hikes
  • Holiday parties
  • Pub trivia
  • Spring retreat
  • Fall Yosemite trip

We also typically head to a neighborhood bar to keep the conversation going after our Wednesday night events.



Monthly Mass in the Lady Chapel

Of course, we're not just a social club. We keep our Catholic faith at the core of everything we do, and we plan a number of events centered around spiritual enrichment, including:

  • Young Adult Mass on the last Wednesday of each month
  • Rosary in the Lady Chapel before Wednesday talks (newbies welcome!)
  • Monthly holy hour
  • Annual retreat
  • Sunday 5:30 Mass—which we've informally claimed—and mingling by the pulpit afterward


Serving dinner at St. Vincent de Paul

We organize a group service event at least once per quarter and advertise additional service opportunities for those interested.  Some of our favorites include:

  • Elderly outreach
  • Serving meals to the homeless
  • Beach and trail cleanup
  • Gardening
  • Annual Coffeehouse fundraiser for the Lima Center (homeless ministry)

If you have a service opportunity for a small army of young adults, please let us know at youngadults@stdominics.org!
