Diocesan Work Camp @ TBD
Jun 23 – Jun 29 all-day

The Diocesan Work Camp is a weeklong camp experience for high school youth to serve our brothers and sisters in need by making their homes safer, warmer, drier, and greener while also having the opportunity to grow in our Catholic faith.

Work Camp is not just a youth event. It is an opportunity for parishes to make a difference in the lives of those in need right here in our diocese while encouraging youth to answer their baptismal call to serve others.

Quo Vadis: Young Men’s Camp @ University of Richmond
Jul 10 – Jul 13 all-day

Quo Vadis is a Latin phrase which translated means “Where are you going?” The goal of the Quo Vadis Camp is to bring high school aged men together who desire to grow in faithful discipleship and personal holiness to be better able to discover their own vocation invitation from our Lord, whatever that might be. This is accomplished through a 4 day experience that is highly energetic, fun, active, prayerful, and meant to build fellowship among the participants.

“Fiat” is a Latin word that refers to Mary’s response to the angel Gabriel, “May it be done to me according to your word” (Luke 1:38). The goal of Fiat Days is to bring high school aged women together who desire to grow in faithful discipleship and personal holiness to be better able to discover their own vocation from the Lord, with a special focus on the call to religious life.

Emmaus Ministry Retreat @ Saint Edward the Confessor, Richmond
Aug 25 all-day

Of all the pains that life can hand us, arguable the most searing is the death of a child. A parent’s world irrevocably and horrifically changes forever. As Jesus joined his distraught disciples on the road to Emmaus after his crucifixion, we ask him to join us as we struggle through this horrendous journey of grief daily.

To meet the spiritual needs of Catholic parents whose children of any age have died by any cause – no matter how long ago – the Diocese of Richmond now offers the Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents. A unique, faith-based program providing spiritual retreats for grieving parents offered by grieving parents, Emmaus Ministry offers a safe place where you can find peace, comfort, and hope.

Join us in a warm and loving environment with others who know something of your pain.
