Calling the Next Generation of Catholic Evangelizers
by Becky Eldredge
Our Catholic faith is lived around a table. Each Sunday, we gather at the Eucharist to be nourished together by the Body and Blood of Christ. However, we are also called to go out from that table and into the world. As vital members of the community, young adults belong at this table and gather to satisfy their hunger for a deepened relationship with Jesus, their hope, so they can share that hope with others. Seven other hungers in young adults provide opportunities for becoming the next generation of Catholic evangelizers.
