Central Vicariate – Greater Richmond

The Office for Evangelization supports young adults in parishes where people gather for worship and formation.

We want to connect young adults to life within a parish and then more broadly to other young adult groups and activities throughout every region of the diocese.

If you are a young adult looking to connect to existing opportunities in your area, please find a helpful list of resources below.
