Young Adult League
 
In the 1990's a number of the younger members of the Community continued the friendships and contacts they had made as members of GOYA with young adult members of neighboring communities. In some of these communities they had organized a YAL (Young Adult League). An effort was begun by some of the young York adults to organize a YAL in York. It really came into fruition in 1998. They meet informally every two to four weeks. They also have large social gatherings in an effort to bring back into the social fabric of the community those with whom the social contacts had been disrupted after graduation from high school. Their efforts have been remarkably successful. During the meetings from May to September in 1998, as many as twenty to thirty persons attended a meeting out of a total number of about fifty to sixty young adults being involved. Three of their members have been elected to the Church Council with two of them serving as officers. They are, of course, affiliated with the YAL of the Archdiocese and attend regional meetings as well as the national conferences. The focus of YAL has been in charitable efforts and initiatives.
