Leadership. Spirituality. Service.

Ignatian Leadership

“Contemplative Leaders in Action” is our leadership development program rooted in Ignatian spirituality, for young professionals (age 24-39) from throughout the Detroit area. We are now taking applications through MAY 31, 2023, for our fourth cohort which will begin September, 2023. This cutting-edge Jesuit program virtually networks young adult leaders in 10 major cities across the country, helping them integrate the development of their leadership gifts in their professional life with their faith and spiritual growth, in the context of a supportive peer community. For more information, explore the CLA website: www.contemplativeleaders.org and our Detroit portal.

If interested, please contact our Detroit Regional Coordinator, Anthony Marciniak: cladet@ignatianyoungadults.org

CLA Detroit is supported in part by a grant from the Catholic Foundation of Michigan.

A Community of Spirituality

Sunday Liturgy.  Join other young adults at Mass on Sunday.  Enjoy serving as a Eucharistic Minister, Lector or Welcome Team Member.

Social Gatherings. Our young adults meet several times a month to get to know each other better as a group. Each month, we have outings around the city, a happy hour and a social after Mass.

Celebrating the International Freedom Fest!


In Service of Others

We encourage our young adults to join the wider parish community in days of service. In the past we have done projects for Earth Day, our neighborhood children, and worked on an urban farm. Many of our young people also volunteer with our Pope Francis Center for the homeless. Sign up individually or with some friends on their website (scroll down for weekday or Saturday options).

Come join us as we build a center of young adult spirituality and community at the heart of the rebirth of downtown Detroit. We live our faith in the city, so that the city’s people can live!
