Communion Liberation (C.L.)

Communion and Liberation is an ecclesial movement whose purpose is the education to Christian maturity of its adherents and collaboration in the mission of the Church in all the spheres of contemporary life. Communion and Liberation is today present in about seventy countries throughout the world. There is no type of membership card, but only the free participation of persons. The basic instrument for the formation of adherents is weekly catechesis, called “School of Community.”

St. Catherine of Alexandria House

Located in the neighborhood of Broad Ripple in Indianapolis, IN, St. Catherine’s is an intentional community of young adult Catholic women striving to grow in personal holiness and supporting one another in faith and ministry.  Life in the “St. Cat’s” House includes daily prayer, weekly mass and community meals, retreats twice a year, and service to the young adult community in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

The house serves as a true example of St. Catherine of Alexandria—a strong young woman of faith.  Her courage and trust in times of temptation, trial, imprisonment, and even death inspire us to continually give everything to God in all of life’s ups and downs.  Residents of the house seek to emulate her strength, virtue, and fortitude knowing that with God all things are possible.

For more information on the ministry at St. Catherine’s please contact Katie Sahm and check out our Facebook page!  The house is full at this time, but we are accepting applications for 2 open spots, starting August 1st, 2014!

Current and Past Members of the House since 2010!


Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati House

The Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati house, located downtown Indy, is a place for men to come together in everyday life and prayer. By living in community, the house’s residents strive to build each other up into the men that God created men to be using Blessed Pier as an example of service, prayer, and a passion for adventure. Coming together as role models and friends allows the young men of the house to give each other the strength and support to carry their love for Christ to the world as upstanding men of faith.

Join us in prayer or apply to live in the house by contacting Fr. Rick Nagel.

“To provide a Catholic House for single men of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis to live in community, pray together, and continue to discern God’s call for their lives.”

 Founded in 2010

Young Adult Mass

2nd Sunday Mass & Social

+ 7pm Mass

+ 8pm Social for young adults

Join young adults from all over the city every second Sunday for the archdiocesan Young Adult and College Campus Ministry Mass and Social. This is a great opportunity to meet and socialize with one another and build fellowship within the Catholic young adult community. We do encourage all young adults to set roots in their parish and get involved locally with parish ministries.  However, it is our hope that once a month young adults in the Indianapolis area can gather together for the celebration of the Holy Mass followed by a young adult social.

For more information and opportunities to get involved in the Second Sunday Liturgy please contact Katie Sahm,

Upcoming 2nd Sunday: April 14th, join us for mass followed by a young adult talent show!

Check out the Homilies from past Young Adult masses!
