Young Adult (ages 18-35)

St. Petronille Young Adults seeks to create an intentional community of Catholic young adults (ages 18-35) who actively are growing deeper in their relationship with Christ, His Church, and others. We hope to grow in knowledge, service, spirituality, and community as we journey together towards sainthood and encounter Christ in the sacraments.

Holy Hour + Social: On the third Wednesday of each month beginning at 7pm, we gather together for an hour of Adoration followed by a social at a local bar/ restaurant.

Outdoor Movie Night: Join us on May 20th at 7:30pm in the St. Petronille north parking lot as we enjoy a tailgate and a movie as a community!

About the ministry team:

Hi! My name is Carina Greico and I am the Director of Young Adult and Youth Ministry here at St. Pets! It is an honor to be here and to be able to provide a spot at the Table to the youth of our parish. It is my passion to bring people together, especially through sharing the beauty of the Catholic faith.

I was born and raised in a very Italian family, so I am typically the loudest in the room and have many opinions on what toppings should and should not be legal to put on a pizza (barbecue sauce is one of those things that should be illegal to put anywhere near a pizza). Most days, you can find me challenging someone new to a game of Skip-bo, sipping on a cup of coffee, or hanging out with friends and family. I also love taking in the endless beauty of a sunset, spending time with Jesus in Adoration, practicing watercoloring, and exploring new places!

Hello! My name is Teresa Dulac and I am the Program Coordinator for Catholic Sports. I was born and raised amidst the cornfields of Omaha, Nebraska, and am the oldest of 11 kids, but everyone thinks I’m the middle child. I graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in May of 2021 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. While there I played volleyball and lacrosse, and took on the nickname “Technical T” in high school basketball. A few of my favorite things are white high-top shoes, liturgy of the hours, and throwing watermelons off of bridges.

I joined Catholic Sports because of my love for sports and my desire to bring community to young Catholics! I’ve seen how sports can bring people together, and the impact of a good Catholic community in my own life. I want to share this with others and bring friendship and a deeper desire for Christ to the young adults here at St. Petronille.
