The Shrine


Service Ministries

  • The Shrine's Young Adult Group meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7 PM (with a break over the summer months) in the Undercroft Meeting Room.  We invite all young adults (over 21) to join us for these gatherings.  (Married couples and single members all welcome).  Our group provides open spiritual discussions, opportunities for community involvement and social events for Catholic young professionals.  Our mission is to provide an opportunity for the Catholic adults at The Shrine to have honest dialog and strong relationships with each other as part of The Shrine's community of believers.  To learn more, visit our Facebook Group -  For questions, contact Chrissy Tachovsky ( or Cheryl Wilson (
