Bringing our English, Spanish and Vietnamese Young Adults together.
La Purisima is happy to offer a multi-faceted ministry for Young Adults and Young Married Couples.
La Purisima is happy to offer young adults a multi-faceted ministry for Young Adults through a collaboration with the other parishes in Orange: St. Norbert and Holy Family.
Every week, AWAKEN offers different kinds of events to engage young adults in their faith, whether it be through adoration, praying the rosary, playing sports, having game nights, or listening to thought-provoking speakers. All young adults are welcome.
Are you in need of some rest? Do you need some spiritual strength? Do you want to know more of your faith? Every Wednesday, Holy Family Cathedral hosts an “hour of power” with adoration at 7PM, followed by the recitation of the Most Holy Rosary at 8:30 PM and our weekly faith discussion until 9:30 PM
Formation Nights are held every Thursday at St. Norbert’s at 8pm in the Youth Room. Every week we cover different topics, including watching videos or having guest speakers. Stay tuned weekly on our instagram account for details of the night.
Sports Nights are regularly held Fridays at La Purisima on the field at 7pm. Depending on the weather, we sometimes have Game Nights or Movie Nights. It’s best to stay updated on our Facebook or Instagram account to know the details.
- What is the age range for Young Adult Ministry?
All young adults ages 18-39 (and not currently in high school) are welcome. Many of our young adults are college-age students, working young professionals, or young married couples.
- Is there a fee to join or participate?
No, there is not! All of our weekly events are always free and open for all young adults. However, sometimes we host special events or fundraisers where we may ask for a small donation, if you would like to participate.
- I have a very busy schedule. What if I can only make it to some meetings?
That’s not a problem! We understand that as young adults we often find ourselves juggling a lot with school, work, or personal commitments. The reason we schedule weekly events on different days is to try to offer different opportunities for fellowship. Come to what you can, when you can!
- I have some ideas for young adult ministry events. How can I share my ideas, or are there opportunities for leadership?
Awaken is a collaborative ministry comprised of the young adults from the different parishes and we always welcome new ideas. There are representatives from each parish, but we are all leaders. Everyone who attends an event is invited to share any ideas to better serve the community
This is a requirement for all parents to assist their children who are going to receive this Sacrament.
- Can I bring a friend even though they are from a different parish?
Of course! All young adults are welcome.
- What is the best way to contact Awaken if I have a question?
You can stay updated with all of our events on Instagram and Facebook and message us directly through the apps. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Young Married Couples
Are you recently married and would like to meet other Catholic young married couples? This new ministry at La Purisima provides monthly meetings for young married couples to get together for sessions, which include spiritual formation, marriage questions, support, and fun!
- Is there an age range for Young Married Couples?
Most of the couples are ages 18-39 and have been married for less than a year and up to five, with or without children.
- Do you provide childcare at your meetings?
Not currently, but for special events, we may offer childcare. We will be sure to advertise that when we do.
- Is there a fee or donation to attend the meetings?
No, there is no fee or donation to attend meetings, however, for special events, such as retreats, there may be a small fee.
- What if I am Catholic, but my spouse is not? Can we still attend?
Of course. It will be a Catholic-based, but all are welcome.
