Discipleship for Young Adults
. . . choosing with God in the decisions of a forming life,
including college, vocation, and establishing a home
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
After graduating from high school, young people enter a time of change and transition. College, vocational school, work, partners, family? Who am I, and who does God call me to become? Young adult ministries in the Diocese of California strive to create landing places and welcoming spaces for young people as they make their way into adulthood. Congregations, campus ministries, shared meals, programs, retreats, and events provide a way for young adults to continue to connect with God and their faith during these years.
The name of our young adult Facebook group, “common,” reflects our intention to seek a common life together, wherever we may live and wherever we are in our journey of faith. Join us to keep in touch, learn about events, and stay connected. Also get connected with 20’s/30’s through the DioCal Intern program.
Opportunities to connect with other 20s/30s
a retreat for 20s and 30s
The common|life retreat offers a space to relax, be yourself, and meet other young adults from around the diocese at The Bishop’s Ranch, one of the diocesan retreat centers located in tranquil Sonoma County. As a community, 20s/30s can share in worship, fellowship, and a lightly scheduled program. You’ll be welcome to relax by the pool, take a hike, read a book or go wine tasting. The schedule will be light, with ample time for structure if that’s you’re thing, or free time if its not.
