On Friday, February 28, the Office of Youth and Young Adults, in collaboration with Queen of Apostles Parish, hosted “Coram Deo.” Coram Deo is an event in partnership with the local young adult community of the Diocese of San Jose to facilitate an encounter with Jesus Christ. Coram Deo, literally translated, means “in the presence of God.” The hope of this community is to lead every young adult to the heart of Jesus by means of the sacraments, uplifting artistry, and virtuous fellowship. At the core of this movement is the honest desire to reach the unreached; to create and cultivate opportunities that can pulse the heart to beauty, goodness, and truth.

On Friday, Coram Deo had the pleasure of offering a Lenten themed prayer experience through the Stations of the Cross. Young adults around the diocese were joined with the parish community of Queen of Apostles to enter into this devotional practice that has been recommended by the Church for centuries. Fr. Jeff Fernandez, Fr. Ritche Bueza, and Fr. Athanasius Kikoba were also present to hear confessions and lead the community in an hour of Eucharistic Adoration.
