All young adults welcome!

With the permission and desire of Bishop Vasa, the Sonoma State Newman Center has been given to us as a center for Catholic young adult activities. Ministering to students of Sonoma State University and Santa Rosa Junior College as well as the larger young adult population of the southern Santa Rosa Diocese and beyond,  we host a variety of events to build community, and foster growth in faith and prayer. See our calendar for current schedule, and email us for details and last minute updates.
