The Young Adults Catholic Association
This group was formed in February 2013, under the chaplaincy of Rev. Fr. Bernard Nganga Kabiu and the patronage of Mr. Paul Kasimu with the assistance of Youth Board, consisting of 10 members who are also Parishoners.
The group was born from the Senior Youth group to accommodate the youth members who felt like they had outgrown that bracket for various reasons; such as having been in the group for a long time, getting into marriages and/or having children.
The Young Adults was then born with approximately 30 members, with the leadership of 6 executive committee members.
The group currently has over 100 members.
The motto; By Christ, For Christ, was also carried over. It means that By the strength and will that Christ Himself has put in us, we do all our activities.
The Core Values include;
- S – Service
- I – Integrity
- R – Respect
- G – Growth
The group’s Patron Saint is St. John Paul the II.
He was a lover of the Youth and the Holy Family youth felt that he would relate so well with us and what we do. We did one of the annual walks, in his honor sometime back.
The group accommodates members between the ages of 27 and 35 Years, or anyone who is married or has a child or children and is below the stated age.
