ALL THINGS NEW - YOUNG ADULT SURVEY

Based on the survey results of the Discipleship Maker Index (DMI) that was offered in the spring of this year, seeing an increase in young adult involvement is the top priority of the archdiocese. In response, the "All Things New" Team, the Office of Young Adult Ministry and the Young Adult Ministry Subcommittee have created a survey to gather feedback from young adults.

All young adults, with or without children, ages 18-39 may anonymously share their beliefs and interests, their needs, their experience in parishes, and their hopes for the future of the Church in St. Louis.

The survey will close September 12th with a report being published in October.
