St. Joseph’s Young Adult Ministry is an open and welcoming group of Catholics in their 20’s and 30’s who endeavor to explore their faith and empower their community. By sponsoring fellowship, engaging in service opportunities, and focusing on spiritual development, we seek to not only grow as individuals, but also as members of our parish, our church, and our society.

In working towards this goal, our ministry focuses on four central pillars:
Faith Development
Community Outreach
Social Development

Who is welcome:
The St. Joseph Young Adult Ministry is open to all people ages 18 – 38, regardless of faith.

When we meet:
We gather for fellowship, faith sharing, and bruch after the 8:30 a.m. mass on the 2nd Sunday of each month. We will gather in the church parking lot between the rectory and the church (adjacent to the entrance to the chapel). Please join us and feel free to bring a friend.

We will seek out volunteer/service opportunities on a regular basis. In addition, we will interact with with other young adults in the Diocese of Arlington at periodic events.
