Diocesan Young Adult Events

2012 St. Augustine March for Life
Religious Vocations Information

Wanna go to Rio? Last summer 60 young adults from our Diocese had life altering experiences at World Youth Day…so we’ve decided to do it again!  In July of 2013, the Diocese of Orlando will be sending a group to RIO to join over a million other young adult Catholics from around the world.  Think you might be interested? Join us this Saturday, October 29 at 2 PM for an interest meeting in the courtroom of the Chancery (50 E. Robinson Street, Orlando).  If you are able to come, or would just like to be added to the mailing list for further information on WYD, contact Michelle Fischer at MFischer@orlandodiocese.org Join us as we “Go and make disciples of all the nations” in Rio de Janeiro.  

Theology on Tap with Fr. Walsh  Mark your calendars for Thursday, November 10 at Fiddler’s Green in Winter Park, 7-9 p.m.  This is a chance to gather together with other young adults from across the diocese and chat about our Catholic faith. Spread the word about this great event! YAs ages 18-39 are welcome. Because of an unavoidable scheduling conflict, Bishop Noonan regrets that he will not be able to be our keynote speaker for this event.  He humbly sends his apologies and is grateful to our Vicar General and fellow Irishman, Fr. Walsh, for taking his place. Bishop is looking forward to seeing you all at the YA Adoration in December (see below)
