We are a group of self-motivated Catholic Young Adults, recognized by the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, dedicated to building the Catholic Young Adult community in Oklahoma City.
Open to all young adults (ages 18-39, married or single) of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, Catholic Young Adults of Oklahoma City is centered on strengthening the entire Catholic community of Oklahoma City.
We will achieve this through our four main pillars: fostering a renewed sense of spirituality and faith, friendships, service, and making disciples to serve the Catholic Church and society.
Our events, all planned by young adults, include: Prayer groups, A social event at Fassler Hall, Theology on Tap, Bible studies, and volunteer service. Please check out our events tab for more CYA events and details!
Young adults are persons in their late teens, twenties, and thirties who represent diverse cultural, racial, ethnic, educational, vocational, social, political, and spiritual backgrounds. They are college and university students, workers, and professionals; they are persons in military service; they are single, married, divorced, or widowed; they are with or without children; they are newcomers in search of a better life.
