Share and spread the Word!
The St. Thomas à Becket Youth Ministry Program is designed to help high school students grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. We encourage them to actively participate in the Catholic community and share their faith on a more global scale through service and social justice projects.
We offer weekly youth meetings on Sunday nights from 6:15 pm – 8:00 pm. Each evening features dialogue focused around four major themes: catechesis, social justice, spirituality, and current issues faced by teens. Some of the usual activities include making sandwiches for Reston Interfaith, discussing stress, proclaiming the word in our lives, and sharing personal spiritual journeys.
Many social activities are offered throughout the year. Workcamp is offered through the Arlington Diocese, which is a week spent living, working, and serving others within Diocese (most recently this was in Winchester, VA). We also hope to send a group to World Youth Day in Madrid in August 2011!
