Prayer • Friendship • Service

OLP Young Adults

One of the most significant challenges in our culture is finding a group of people you can relate to and you can walk with on the journey.


You are invited to join a community for young adults in South Minneapolis that is both a safe place to belong and an encouraging place to be challenged to grow as disciples of Christ.


“Whether we realize it or not, prayer is the encounter of God's thirst with ours. God thirsts that we may thirst for him.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2560

The Mass, the highest form of prayer in our Catholic faith, comes from a Latin word meaning “sent.” Our communal worship sends us out to love and serve the Lord in our daily lives. In the same way, communal prayer inspires and equips us as individual disciples who are then sent out to communicate with the Lord in a day-to-day personal relationship.


“Faithful friends are a sturdy shelter; whoever finds one finds a treasure. Faithful friends are beyond price, no amount can balance their worth. Faithful friends are life-saving medicine; those who fear God will find them. Those who fear the Lord enjoy stable friendship, for as they are, so will their neighbors be.”

Sirach 6:14-17

Many saints throughout history have close friends who have also been canonized. Friendship is a great help in pursuing holiness and the enjoyment of everyday life.


“It is not "excelling" but "serving" that makes us most human”

Henri Nouwen

The natural response to fulfilling friendships with God and with others is gratitude. This gratitude finds expression in service, particularly humble service to the poor to recognize our own poverty.
