WorkCamp 2022!

High school teens are invited to WorkCamp 2022!  Spend a week with other teens from the Arlington Diocese doing significant home repairs for those in need in the Winchester area.  Check out the video below for a picture of what to expect during the week!




Adults: are you passionate about your faith and have a love for the youth?  Do you have experience as a coach, mentor, or teacher?  

If this describes you, please consider volunteering to be a volunteer leader in youth ministry.  In order to offer a wide variety of youth groupings to inspire and equip every young person in the parish to encounter Jesus Christ as their friend, we need your talents.

We are looking for adults who are:
- Practicing Catholics who are striving for holiness
- Willing and able to build mentoring relationships with teens
- Able to commit to at least two activities a month

If you would like to help but don't think that you can serve as a leader, please pray for the youth of the parish!  If you are able to help as a leader, please contact Michael Jacobeen at [email protected]
