Serving in youth ministry means more than just helping students grow in their faith.  It also means growing in your own faith. We will walk you through the easy process of getting certified by VIRTUS, the Archdiocese of Washington’s Child Protection Policy.  Training and retreats are provided periodically to help you grow in your faith and better serve our young people. Here are a few ways to get involved:

Babysitting-

Adults - This stipend position helps to care for and provide a stimulating environment to our littlest ones - toddler through Kindergarten. Babysitting is offered at the 5 pm, 9 am, and 11:30 am Masses. Those 18+ must be cleared and certified through VIRTUS before beginning to serve. We can assist with the process. For more information please click here. 
Teens - Teens play with and care for the children in babysitting. This can be a great way for teens to earn service hours for their school, if it meets the school's requirements. Babysitting is offered at the 5 pm, 9 am, and 11:30 am Masses. For more information please click here.


SLAM-

​Anyone and everyone is welcome to help with this ministry to those Kindergarten - Grade 5. SLAM happens during Mass and everything is prepared for you. The script for the weekend is emailed out on the Wednesday before and the room will be set-up for you. Adults can serve in two roles. The Lead Host is the presenter for that day. Following the script provided, the Lead Host presents the Scripture and Big Idea and then engages the kids in discussing how to live it out. Adults can also serve as Hosts to help with crowd control, kids who need to go to the bathroom, and sit with kids who are new and may be nervous. Those in 6th Grade and up are also invited to help. Roles include leading the kids out of Church to the SLAM room, running our power point, music, and tech. For more information on helping with SLAM please click here.
