This summer, host an ice cream social for members of your parish after Mass. Speak briefly about what the young adult ministry at the parish does and activities you’re involved in. Give parish members some ideas about how they can help you in your work. Talk with older members of your parish and see if you can share their perspectives — a more seasoned adult can show you how ideas used in business or adult life can be applied to young adult ministry. The group’s planning of the ice cream social is both good experience for them and gives parishioners a good idea of how they work well together. This combination of good food and a curious group of young people ensures that more experienced members of the parish will be happy to help you.
