Young Adult Ministry

Find a Community

Don’t journey life alone! Find a sense of belonging in one of our young adult faith communities. Connect with fellow young people as we deepen our love for Christ, and with whom we can journey the transitions of this moment of our life.

The young adult Body of Christ is always inspired and active in OC! Join one of the several experiences in our diocese to strengthen your faith, enliven your spirit, and live out your discipleship. If you are not able to commit to a young adult community, you are always welcome to join us in any of these events!

Benito Medrano

Young Adult Ministry Coordinator

Benito became an altar server at around 10, and since then he’s been involved in different ministries, specially youth and young adult ministry at the parish and diocesan level. Before coming to the Diocese of Orange, he worked for the Office of Formation and Evangelization in the Diocese of Fresno where his parents and most of his siblings live. Benito prefers sci-fi shows, rolled-down windows and loud music in a car, and is getting on the habit of actually reading books, instead of just buying them.
