Youth Ministry program includes: The fun never stops at All Saints! We have many programs for our middle school and high school students.
High School:    Sunday Night Life Nights are full of fun and help us have a better understanding of our Catholic faith. Join us every Tuesday after school for Time Out Tuesday where we play sports, board games, Wii, and have snacks. On Wednesday (Girls) and Thursdays (boys) we have our CLC groups that meet to grow deeper in faith through small group sharing. Every third Friday, our bilingual Agua y Luz group meets to talk about our faith and how we can be Christ's light in the world. Throughout the year we have fund raisers like our mulch sale, opportunities to participate in our Upper Room Theatre Ministry, workcamp and mission trips!
Middle School:  Join us every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month for Ascend, a small group environment where we talk about what it means to be Christians, and how the Gospel applies to our lives! On the second Friday of every month, we have Middle School Mania where we celebrate the fun of being Catholic, hang out, play games, and meet new friends! Each month we have an outing to doing something fun together like laser tag, a movie, or a service project. In the summer, we have our Middle School Mission program, which is like workcamp, where we serve the people in our Manassas community with Christ-like joy.

Why I work in Youth Ministry: I work in Youth Ministry because I see the importance of making an impact and growing together with those around me. I have always had a desire to serve others. While I was caught between continuing my career in culinary school or studying Youth Ministry, the Lord made it clear to me that I could serve food to people that satisfied for a meal, or I could serve them Him, the Food that is eternal and will always satisfy. The Holy Spirit has led my feet here, and I will continue to walk where He guides me!

About Me:
I feel like it's illegal to eat this much pizza.
