St. Veronica Young Adults is one of the fastest-growing and most active young adult parish groups in the Diocese of Arlington. We are known to be a very welcoming, energetic, and caring community...
St. Veronica Young Adults is for those in their 20's and 30's, open to singles and married alike. Non-parishioners are welcome!
We aim to foster growth in faith in Jesus Christ through the Roman Catholic Church and to commit to spread His message of salvation.
We are well-known for quality thought-provoking studies and faith discussions! We meet on Wednesdays in the Parish Hall (Go to the left and back of the Church) from 8 to 9:30 pm. Our meetings consist of a book or Scripture study, socializing, and prayer (with optional fellowship at Applebee's afterwards). We are privileged to have Adoration and Confession at 7 pm and Mass at 7:30 pm in the church right before our meeting.
Our social events, which occur almost every weekend, are top-notch, super creative, and so popular that they always draw young adults from all over the DC area! Our biggest events of the year are Contra & Swing Dance Night (every May and November) and BBQ Extravaganza (every second Saturday of August). These events draw hundreds of young adults from all over the DC area.

We were interviewed on International TV! Former leader Mike Filamor and member Linda Grijalba appeared on EWTN's Life on the Rock to discuss how St. Veronica Young Adults has become one of the fastest-growing and most active young adult parish groups in the DC Area. We hope to help other young adult groups in the country by sharing our principles for growth. Click HERE for our video interview (starts at 9:38 to end).
