Working in Witness For Christ

About Us

Our mission is to encourage young adult professionals to Work in Witness for Christ.

  • YCP was founded in 2010 to help driven, Catholic professionals in their 20s and 30s connect with one another and grow in their Catholic faith.
  • Central to YCP’s mission of engaging young Catholic leaders is the importance of connecting them with seasoned Catholic professionals.
  • Our mission also calls upon the intercession of St. Joseph the Worker, our patron saint, who reminds us of the importance of stillness, reflection, and prayer. Join us in prayer every Wed. at 12pm CST! 
  • The YCP National Office oversees training, development and implementation of each individual, local chapter throughout the country. Local chapters rely on YCP National for ongoing guidance, direction and support.

From the Bishops

Please accept…my support for the formation of a Young Catholic Professionals chapter in the Diocese of Fort Worth. I am confident that the Fort Worth Chapter will thrive in following the mission of encouraging young adult professionals to Work in Witness for Christ.

Most Reverend Michael F. Olson, S.T.D. M.A., Bishop of Fort Worth

The mission of YCP encourages young adults working in various professions to ‘Work in Witness for Christ,’ a challenge we all face as Catholics and one that requires support and encouragement from the community and from our peers in the faith…It is a great blessing to have ministries...that bring about the next generation of business leaders, philanthropists, and joyful, faithful, and fruitful Catholic families.

Most Reverend Gustavo García‐Siller, M. Sp.S., Archbishop of San Antonio

I hope, my dear people, that you will support the Young Catholic Professionals so that this movement within our Church will continue to grow, and our Church will once again flourish in this community, in this society.

Most Reverend Kevin J. Farrell, D.D., Bishop of Dallas

I would very much welcome the development of a Young Catholic Professionals chapter in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. Your targeted segment of our Catholic population has so much to offer. I hope that having a YCP chapter here will better harness the energies and talents as well as nurture the faith of these young adults so they can make a positive impact on our Church and our society.

Most Reverend Paul S. Coakley, Archbishop of Oklahoma City

Knowing how important it is for young Catholics to be credible and joyful witnesses to the Gospel in their everyday lives, and the critical role that the support of peers plays in this regard, by this letter I am pleased to lend my own support and encouragement to the Young Catholic Professionals and their endeavors to being a new chapter here.

Most Reverend Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston

Young Catholic Professionals enables young adults to integrate their professional careers with the values of the Gospel and their Catholic faith. YCP provides the place for young adults to learn how to witness to Christ in their professional lives, unite themselves more deeply to Christ and His Church, and connect them to a local parish community.

Most Reverend Thomas J. Olmsted, Bishop of Phoenix
