Young Adult Formation & Events

At this time, we do not have a coordinated Young Adult ministry at St John Neumann. Hopefully someone will step forward this year to coordinate this effort. Until that time, this spot on the Christian Formation page will keep you informed of diocesan events that are available.

Young Adult Summer Mission 2012
Wednesday, August 1 - Sunday, August 5, 2012
Norton, VA in Wise County

The Young Adult Summer Mission is part mission, part retreat. This is an opportunity for young adults (18+) to serve our brothers and sisters in need by making their homes safer and more comfortable while also having the opportunity to grow in our Catholic faith and to be witnesses of that faith to others. This is not a typical event. The Summer Mission is an opportunity to take a few days out of the daily routine, engage in a rural southwest community within our own diocese, and bring Christ to others through our work and witness.
