Spark Catholic Young Adult Community is focused on bringing authentic opportunities for young adults in Riverside to experience worship, community, prayer and the sacraments with other young adults. Firmly rooted in the Catholic faith, our goal is to walk alongside you as you create or strengthen a Christian faith life.

Bi-monthly regular meetings on two Thursday evenings are the foundation of our community life. In addition, Spark also occasionally hosts other social events or gatherings.

We understand that life gets busy. Join us when you can; we will be here waiting for you!

This is my first time finding out about Spark. Now what?

If you are new to the area, looking for other events for young adults in Riverside (and surrounding areas), or want to connect, please contact us or visit our parishes of St. Thomas the Apostle or St. Catherine's of Alexandria. There is a community of young adult Catholics waiting to meet you and to welcome you home! You are not alone. We are Roman Catholic but everyone (RCIA participants, new Catholics, returning Catholics, Christians of other denominations or those still searching for a faith life) are invited to become a part of our community.

We also encourage you to find the Office of Young Catholics in the Diocese of San Bernardino on social media to hear about larger events for young adult Catholics. They can be found on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Social media is the best way to know about news from SPARK. You can also text us at (951) 468-5671 or email us at spark.catholicyoungadult@gmail.com if you have any questions.
