More than 60 U.S. Military-affiliated Catholic young adults, priests, chaplains, pastoral leaders, and support staff are gathered in together in the DC area this weekend for the first-ever, in-person Young Adult Ministry Symposium sponsored by the Archdiocese.

The Jan. 20-23 forum at the Hilton Crystal City at Reagan National Airport comes in response to Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation, Christus Vivit. The exhortation calls on local Churches worldwide to bring the young together to consider fresh ways the Church can accompany them on their spiritual journey.
