The goal of the MYA on the National, Eparchial and parish (local) level is to assist each young adult to come to a greater appreciation and involvement with his/her faith in God and service for the gospel of Christ and for the needs of others in our families, among our friends, and in our communities.


Call young adults to be disciples of Jesus Christ, so that they may be lights in the world
Draw young adults into the life, work, and mission of the faith community
Foster the total personal and spiritual growth of young adults thus deepening their faith in Christ


To enable young adults to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ
To connect young adults with the life of the parish community and to make them more visible in parish life
To enable young adults to know and understand the teachings, traditions and practices of the Maronite Church, deepening their Christian identity
To enable young adults to better understand their Maronite Catholic faith and to live it at home, school, work, and during recreation
To provide a safe environment and a place where young adults share and grow together in faith, learning more about being Christian Maronite Catholic
To develop an intentional outreach to uninvolved and non-practicing peers
To involve young adults in prayer and worship
To enable our young adults to continue being and to become happy, healthy and holy adults
