It’s easy to get caught up in planning the ministry, but Amy McEntee also emphasizes the importance of getting to know the young adults within your ministry:
It’s important to be prepared and well organized, but young adult ministry is about ministering to young adults. If young adults show up, get to know them. Invite them for a meal after Mass. Get coffee with them. Connect them with other young adults. Don’t miss ministry opportunities because you’re busy planning the ministry!
