Holy Spirit Fire – Young Adults

Holy Spirit Fire

Young Adults

We are Catholic young adults with a passion for life, a deep love for the Catholic Church, and a dedication to living out the mission of the Gospel with joy in our everyday lives through the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit. (Ages 21-39)

Why Fire Exists

Holy Spirit Fire exists as a countercultural Catholic young adult group, and we are committed to LIVE the mission of Christ individually EVERY DAY. Fire stands apart from typical young adult groups today because it is dedicated to give young adults purpose and responsibility as disciples in the Catholic Church. We exist not only to grow community, authentic friendships, develop faith lives, and form disciples… but the step beyond… WE EXIST to call young adults on to MORE – to be virtuous, to be holy, to be APOSTLES, dynamic Catholic leaders in the world, living our baptisimal call every single day for love of Christ and His Church.

We do all this by and through the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit who ignites our hearts to set the world ON FIRE by the witness of our lives.

Fire is About the Mission

Cultivating Authentic Friendships

Through team building and exciting adventures, we strive to meet people where they’re at and have a blast doing cultivating authentic friendships in Christ!

Equipping Ourselves as Warriors for Christ

We recognize we’re not alone in our struggles and we strive to arm ourselves for mission through: frequent reception of the sacraments, cultivation of our prayer lives, and commitment to growing in virtue and character to be Christ’s lights to the world.

Setting Hearts on Fire

Our goal and mission is to form Apostles – dynamic Catholic leaders, to go out and set the world on fire for Christ through the witness of our lives!

Our Core Virtues

Courage ~ Authenticity ~ Joy

“Friends, life is very short & precious. It is our call and mission to live our Catholic faith to the max in a world starving for love and understanding. This is our mission, to LOVE God and LOVE neighbor, and set the world ON FIRE for LOVE of Christ by the witness of our lives through the daily inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit.

This is why Holy Spirit Fire exists.
