Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the Saint Katherine Young Adult Ministry page!  The YAL in Northern VA and D.C. is one of the most active and energetic YAL scenes in the whole country.  Get involved, meet people, explore your faith, enliven your spiritual life, and have fun with our YAL ministry!

  • YAL (Young Adult League) is a ministry for young adults in their 20s and 30s.
  • The mission of the Greek Orthodox Young Adult League (YAL) is to cultivate and educate our young adults (18-35 or thereabouts), leading them to the fullness of the Faith and likeness of God. By utilizing the four circles of Christian living – Worship, Witness, Service, and Fellowship, young adults are integrated into the life of the Church, enabling them to become active members of the body of Christ.
  • YAL allows young adults to connect with other Orthodox groups in the area, nurtures spiritual growth, and provides opportunities for those wanting to serve their Church and local community.
