On Ash Wednesday and throughout Lent each year, an increased number of young adults and inactive Catholics return to church, at least for a short while. This session will explore the meaning behind such an incredible phenomenon and creative ways we can turn these brief moments into boundless milestones for young adults on their journey of faith. We will also consider how church leaders can learn from this particular moment of return to enhance the community’s year-round outreach to and ministry with men and women in their 20s and 30s.
