Gifts to Seek God and Live in Him

Father, in Your goodness grant me the intellect to comprehend You, the perception to discern You, and the reason to appreciate You.

In your kindness endow me with the diligence to look for You, the wisdom to discover You, and the spirit to apprehend You.

In Your graciousness bestow on me a heart to contemplate You, ears to hear You, eyes to see You, and a tongue to speak of You.

In Your mercy confer on me a conversation pleasing to You, the patience to wait for You, and the perseverance to long for you.

Grant me a perfect end, Your holy presence. Amen
This group is for any single or married young adults between the ages of 18-39. This is a Catholic young adult group but we welcome all young adults regardless of their faith.

To provide a safe and comfortable environment where young adults can openly share, learn, and/or experience their faith and spirituality

To encourage young adults to explore their faith and develop their spirituality by catering to the needs of each individual through faith sharing, community service, and/or fellowship.

No commitment to join the group, just feel free to join us whenever you can.
Welcome to SBYAG
St. Thomas More Young Adults Group launched in November 2008. In June 2009, Monsignor Labab Kobti came up with the idea to rename it "St. Benedict's Young Adult Group in loving memory of Benedict Aguas (2/22-81-5/30/09)

Ben was a pioneer member of the group. He served as the main inspiration and advisor to his younger sister, Bernice, when she began developing the group after Monsignor Labib gave her the idea to start it.

Ben peacefully passed away on Pentecost in May 2009 but his spirit and passion lives on through the mission and members of the St. Benedict's Young Adult Group of St Thomas More Church.

5 Love Languages
Who wrote about the 5 Love Languages and why learn about them?
Your love language

Take the test & find out what your primary love language is.


Your primary love language has an emotional connection.
The 5 Love Languages
Words of Affirmation
Actions don't always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, "I love you, " are important-hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and not easily forgotten.

Quality Time
In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says "I love you" like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there-with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby-makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially harmful.

Receiving Gifts
Don't mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. If you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. A missed birthday, anniversary, or a hasty, thoughtless gift would be disastrous-so would the absence of everyday gestures.

Acts of Service
Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an Acts of Service person will speak volumes. The words he or she most wants to hear are, "Let me do that for you." Laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them, tell those with this language their feelings don't matter.

Physical Touch
This language isn't all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face-they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgiveable and destructive.
