About the Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry at St. Anthony of Padua

St. Anthony of Padua Youth Ministry participates in youth events run by the Diocese of Arlington and seeks to help young people at our diverse parish encounter Christ and recognize that we are all a part of ONE, HOLY, CATHOLIC and APOSTOLIC Church. We appreciate the many cultures represented in our global community and welcome all to participate in our events, discussions, field trips and retreats.

Our Director of Youth Ministry, James Armstrong, is putting together an Adult Core Team for the 2018-2019 school year. We are seeking Catholic adults who would like to be an active part of creating a welcoming, non-judgmental environment where Catholic teens from all walks of life can come to share how the Lord is working in their lives.

James is a full-member in Youth Apostles, has walked over 500 miles across Spain on El Camino de Santiago, was a collegiate mascot for four-years, and journaling in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament is his favorite way to pray.
