Paul Jarzembowski explains that there is a great deal of diversity and transition within the category of “young adult.” Who is part of your ministry and who is missing?
The Breakdown of Young Adults
- College Age: Including those in a university setting, the military, a trade/vocational school, or already in the working world.
- Single: Including those intentionally single, seeking, dating, single again, divorced, widowed, separated, and single parents.
- Couples: Including engaged, married, and those with and without children.
- Religious: Including seminarians, novices, and those studying for religious life, plus young priests and vowed sisters and brothers.
