I have received many inquires this month asking questions about the YAM's around our diocese. Because of this interest, I thought it would be a good idea to highlight a different YAM each month. This will be a chance to learn more about the ministries in the diocese, what they are up to, and why they think young adult ministry is important to the Church!

Our first featured YAM is The Vine: Catholic Young Adults in Asheville,  which is associated with the Basilica of St. Lawrence.

We hope this new feature helps connect the various YAMs, inspires everyone with new ideas, and celebrates how Christ is reaching Catholic Young Adults throughout the diocese.

Many blessings,
Mary Wright
Director of Campus and Young Adult Ministry

Truly, the Son of God likes people so much, he became one. He always meets them where they are, shows the Father's love for them, shows them He believes in them, and then shows them the Way that is himself.

I'm not going to pretend that we're all best friends, but we like coming together, and like Jesus, we get together where we are: in our homes, out and about, over potlucks, or lunch in a restaurant, or grilling out (or any meal-like Jesus, we like food) ...
