Faith Connections invites young adults 18–39 to engage in opportunities that generate spiritual growth and community building.
We'll help you network with other young adults and put you in touch with young adult ministries.
Through our retreats and programs, we hope to nourish your spirituality, and we can help you find spiritual direction.

At the November 15 launch of Faith Connections’ Portraits of Faith: Young Adult Catholics Share their Stories, eighty-five friends and supporters celebrated with the 18 young adult authors (six men, six women and three couples) who hail from across Canada and beyond. The project had its genesis with Joe Sinasac, Publishing Director of Novalis, who noted that Pope Paul VI had described evangelization as most effective when it is done through the sharing of real-life stories. “We wanted,” he said, “to counter-act all the negativity swirling in the world around us about the Church and religious faith in general....Their stories are compelling, inspiring and full of hope and faith...accounts of real people who lived through various ups and downs, some facing very difficult challenges in their lives. A common thread through them all is the faith they share in Jesus Christ and his message of mercy and redemption.”
It is with great excitement that we announce the arrival of the very first book to come out of our Faith Connections ministry, Portraits of Faith: Young Adult Catholics Share Their Stories!
We have been busy this afternoon preparing for the book launch tonight at the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto's administration centre, where attendees will have a chance to meet and mingle with the book's young adult authors.
The Catholic Register writes,
"Combine a little walk, a little prayer, three churches and group of young people from a variety of faiths, and you have the makings of a pretty interesting Sunday afternoon in downtown Toronto.
"It’s called a Hike and Prayer event, and on Nov. 6 it lived up to its promise for the group of young adults (age 18-35), with the added bonus of good weather and nice Toronto downtown scenery."

The Prayer of Request or Prayer of Intercession is asking God in our own words for what we need or desire for ourselves or others. It is interceding with God for our family, our friends, and the world.
