  • What is CRYS?

    2015 marks the 22th anniversary that CRYS has been serving young, Catholic singles in the Diocese of Phoenix. We are blessed to be able to offer many opportunities for young adults to grow in faith and to be a part of a vibrant Catholic community. From hosting the first CRYS retreat in 1993, the CRYS community has grown tremendously over the years. We are continuing our mission of serving Catholic young adults.

    Since our founding in 1993 by Father Alberto Ruiz, CMF, the CRYS ministry has focused on providing sacramental and devotional centered spiritual retreats for single adults ages 21-40.
