Building Up the Body of Christ

The Young Church

The Center for Youth and Young Adult Evangelization focuses on building up the Body of Christ through excellence in youth and young adult formation.

Since the early 1990s, Saint Meinrad also has focused on high school youth through its “One Bread, One Cup” program for liturgical leadership.

Then in 2017, Saint Meinrad implemented its Young Adult Initiative that works directly with parishes and researches the needs of young adults in the Catholic Church.
