Young Adult Track

Welcome to the Young Adult Track within the Diocese of Fresno Annual Congress!

This track is specifically for young adults between the ages of 18-39 married, unmarried, with children or without.

This year we have the honor of having Rhyan Ramirez from the Diocese of Sacramento and Sister Pia St. Romain from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. These incredible speakers will be tackling issues such as being Catholic on days that end in Y, spirituality for Young Adults, and reflecting on Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation called “Christus Vivit”.  Come join us for a day of fellowship and reflection with other Young Adults from around our diocese.

YA.B Keeping the Faith as a Young Adult

Rhyan Ramirez

Being a young adult in today’s world has many challenges, from what to study in college, what career path to take, how to spend your free time and with whom. The list goes on and on. Living out your Catholic Faith can even be more of a challenge, especially if you’ve moved away from home and are carving out a new life of your own. Rhyan, aka ‘Bro Rhy’, shares practical ways to keep your Catholic Identity that can be easily incorporated into your everyday life. The ‘Camera Of Truth’ is one of the tools that he’s developed and this simple, yet powerful way of approaching a situation has struck a chord with both youth and adults.
