Catholic Ames Young Adult Community

Catholic Ames Young Adult Community (CAYAC) seeks to provide a dynamic community gathered around Word and Sacrament, rooted in evangelization and service, to each other, to the parish, and to the Ames community.

We have at least two social events, one spiritual, and one service event per month. Past events have included game nights, apple picking, bowling, ice skating and many more. Spiritual events have included adoration, divine mercy chaplet, religious videos, and more. Service events have included serving food at Food at First, cooking a supper at Emergency Residence Project, making blankets for Project Linus and more. 

To stay up to date on events, please email to receive our bi-weekly emails and like Catholic Ames Young Adult Community on Facebook!
