Dedication: We dedicate this vision and pastoral plan to Catholic young adults--men and women in their late teens, twenties and thirties. We do so because we realize the tremendous gifts which they bring to church life. As single people or married couples, with or without children, their presence enriches our society and our Church. We hope this plan will be an effective tool to connect young adults with Jesus Christ and his challenge to bring the Gospel -- with its message of hope -- to society.
"Ministry to young Catholics is crucial in the Church today and Young Adult Ministry in a Box is the most effective resource I've seen that helps a local faith community get something started for young adults. It's a wise investment for any parish or diocese." (Cardinal Timothy Dolan Archbishop of New York, President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops)
