About Catholic Sports
Catholic Sports is a Denver-based, national young adult recreational sports outreach organization. Our mission is to build authentic community through recreational sports. “We define authentic community as one that fills the void of emotional and spiritual loneliness (Gen Z. 18-25 year-olds are the loneliest generation according to 2018 Cigna Health research) by living our core values (Hospitable Outreach, Catholic Orthodoxy & Vulnerable Intimacy) while remaining rooted in the teachings of the Catholic Church. Our recreational sports leagues allow players to enter this authentic community, through which they will be invited into our Bible Studies, so that they may continue to grow in a personal relationship with Jesus.”
We have seen incredible fruit in our apostolate, and through our partnership parishes, we are providing a community of belonging and conversion for young adults. Numerous marriages, re-conversions, and conversions have happened as the Spirit works through our missionaries and volunteers. This work is bearing fruit…is God inviting you to the harvest through Catholic Sports?
