“My friends, the Lord needs you! Today too, he is calling each of you to follow him in his Church and to be missionaries. The Lord is calling you today! Not the masses, but you, and you, and you, each one of you. Listen to what he is saying to you in your heart.”

COMMUNITY: Living His Communion Together

St. Thomas Apostle Young Adults

Visit our St. Thomas the Apostle Young Adults (STAY) website HERE and subscribe to our newsletter! Or find us on Facebook.

STAY provides young adults in the Woodley Park area and beyond with opportunities to deepen their faith and live the Gospel through spiritual, service, and social programs. Join us each Sunday for our STAY Mass at 7:30pm, where young adults and the "young at heart" are always welcome, or at one of our events, some of which are mentioned below and all of which can be found on our website and in our newsletter!

If you are a young adult (ages 21-39) and would like to get more involved with STAY, please speak to an executive board member after Mass or email us at staydc@gmail.com.

Recurring STAY events:

Bible Study
Every Tuesday is STAY with the Word from 7-8:15pm in the parish library. Newcomers of all ages are always welcome and you don't even need to bring your own Bible! Questions? Email us at STAYspirituality@gmail.com.

Prayer for Young Adults

Lord, grant that I may always allow myself to be guided by you, always follow your plans and perfectly accomplish your holy will. Grant that in all things, great and small, today and all the days of my life, I may do whatever you require of me. Help me respond to the slightest prompting of your grace so that I may be your trustworthy instrument for your honor. Amen.

-St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
