2017-18 Theme

This year's theme for the Office of Youth, Campus, and Young Adult Ministries in the Catholic Diocese of Arlington is “Walk humbly with your God.” We are excited to use this theme because it is the episcopal motto of our new bishop, Bishop Michael F. Burbidge, who was installed as the fourth bishop of the Diocese of Arlington on December 6, 2016.

Learn more about our annual theme.
