About Us

Some Things You Might Not Know
We are working to bring Christ into our community.

Formed in 2013, Ad Deum aims to work as a Catholic lay movement in the Tidewater area to promote greater awareness of Catholic theology, liturgy, history and social teaching within the local community. In short, Ad Deum seeks to equip Catholics to know the Faith, pray the Faith and then act on the Faith. While not officially associated with the Catholic Diocese of Richmond, Ad Deum works to complement the activities of our Bishop and priests. Ad Deum is a non-profit incorporated in the State of Virginia and recognized as 501(c)3 eligible organization with the Federal Government.
