Young Adult | Winter Pilgrimage

Young adults and those with young families are invited to join our community for a pre-Christmas Pilgrimage, led by Fr. Stephen Vaccaro! Spend the day with us as we visit two holy sites in D.C. while reflecting on the theme of waiting during the heart of the Advent season. Families with young children are welcome to attend and may join us for all or part of the day – whatever works better for your family! Register Below
