What Does the Young Adult Scene Look Like??
It is challenging for young adults to practice their faith alone... especially with today's culture and temptations. This new ministry, run by young adults for young adults, not only allows those in their 20s and 30s to build fellowship together, but also to learn and worship the Lord through mass, music, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, bible studies, movie nights, retreats, social nights and more, exploring Christ's life and Catholic Theology in a fun, relaxed way.

Catholic Underground © a.k.a. CU, is a cultural apostolate of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal - www.franciscanfrias.com. It is a direct response to a call that began with Pope John Paul II, and is continued by Pope Benedict XVI. JPII said that because the Gospel lives in conversation with culture, we must be fearless in crossing the cultural threshold of the communication and information revolution now taking place.
The 1st part of the evening is Eucharist adoration, and begins with Vespers (Evening Prayer). This is the universal prayer of the Church—prayed by Catholics throughout the world in every time zone and in every language. The holy hour ends with solemn Benediction. The 2nd part showcases Catholic artists. The Underground includes music, poetry, visual art, dancers, film, drama, etc. We end our evening as we began, with the prayer of the Church.
