The Columbia Region has a thriving community of young adults seeking and exploring the abundant life Christ offers through Scripture studies, speakers, community outreach, prayer, fellowship and more.

There are a number of studies on a weekly basis at several different locations. As the young adult Catholic community continues to expand to serve more parishes in the greater Columbia area, more meeting times and locations will be added.
