Young Adult Ministry

Welcome Young Adults!

– Ages 21-39 –

Northern VA is blessed to have so many faithful young adults!

“Catholic Life Young Adult Ministry” is a Fairfax-wide group that serves both single and married people ages 21-39 years old, organized by Church of the Nativity. Nativity wants to provide a community where you can feel at home and grow closer to God with your peers. Parishioners from any church in the diocese are welcome!

Christine has lived in Northern Virginia for most of her life but managed to go to high school on three different continents.

Our goal:
To create a place where Nativity’s young families can meet one another, build community, and grow in faith together.
Join us at Nativity one Saturday a month, from 9:00am-10:30am, with your spouse and children under 4 years old. We will provide coffee – because we know you love it –  social time with other parents, group prayer, and discussion of faith and parenting (Examples: sleep problems, behavior in Church, how to pray with your family, etc.). We also provide age-appropriate toys for your little ones.
Got ideas? Want to help with planning?
