Jesuit Young Adult Ministries is a vibrant community of young Catholics seeking to find God in all things. We offer a unique approach to life which involves a deeper encounter with Jesus Christ. Bring your whole self – the good, the bad, and the ugly - into a friendship with God. This is what St Ignatius of Loyola teaches us. Join us for social events, retreats, pilgrimages, fun, friendship, and the weekly Young Adult Mass.
Definition: “more”… not just adding more, but rather seeking to live with greater integrity and faith, to give oneself more deeply to the Greater Glory of God. The five pillars of MAGIS are: Community, Prayer, Experience, Reflection, and Service.
