Catholic Young Adults » Assemble!
As young adults ourselves, we understand how confusing post-college life can be, especially if you’re new to Richmond or can’t find people your age at church. It’s no secret that young adults tend to be a rarer species at Mass these days — or perhaps it’s just harder to find us! That’s where we hope CatholicRVA can help.
There are tons of groups, events, and volunteering opportunities (on the parish, regional, and Diocesan level) available for young adults to actively engage their church communities. Up until now we’ve relied very heavily on parish-specific facebook groups to “rally the troops” so to speak. As expected this has gotten somewhat confusing, so we thought it might be practical to consolidate all of these opportunities in one place. Hence — CatholicRVA.com!
How is CatholicRVA going to work?
Now all this sounds dandy so far right? But in order for it to really work — that is, if we’re going to make this site a vibrant and up-to-date resource for young adult Catholics all over the Richmond area, we will need YOUR help! If your parish is hosting an event or establishing a group specifically for young adults, we’d love to hear from you. We also need to create some ground-swell among the people, so share this site on facebook, or email it to your friends.
Grace and peace,
The Cathedral Young Adult Ministry
