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.

Ministry with young professionals is an important work in our Church in order to develop Catholic leaders, and I am pleased to welcome this ministry and it’s efforts to our diocese.

Formal Endorsement Letter

Most Reverend Joe S. Vasquez, Bishop of Austin

The work that the YCP ministry has developed throughout the United States seems to have been successful in helping young adults make the strong connection between their faith and their work lives. I hope that YCP’s focus on young adults that working in professional settings will help engage them in parish life and help them better understand the connection between live and faith.
