Youth Ministry Gatherings

Christ the King Sunday

Every Catholic faith community around the world is encouraged to celebrate and reflect on youth and young adults annually on Christ the King Sunday. Visit the USCCB website for resources to encourage youth and young adults. Join Catholic youth and youth ministry leaders at events to pray together, network, and to encourage young people to share their gifts within your community.

Youth Rally and Mass for Life 2023 – Cancelled

The Archdiocese of Washington and the Diocese of Arlington have cancelled their respective annual gatherings prior to the 2023 March for Life taking place on Friday, January 20, 2023 in Washington, DC. Many dioceses are planning local events rather than traveling to the national march. Consult the local diocesan office of youth ministry to inquire if anything may be planned in your area.
