Youth Ministry

Saint James has a very active youth ministry where students have fun, make friends, and grow in their faith. If you have any questions or are interested in your student participating, Contact Fr. John Paul at the rectory at 703-532-8815 or [email protected]. Check out some of our programs for youth below. All events require a permission form and/or waiver which will be listed in each section.

First Friday Food Distribution-Community Outreach Opportunity-High School -We are seeking additional high school youth volunteers for our monthly Food Distribution.  This outreach initiative typically occurs on the First Friday of the month in Heller Hall.  Volunteer shifts begin in the afternoon and end by 7:00pm.  If you are interested, email Amy Steinbicker [email protected] to be added to the “St. James Volunteer Group”.  Once you are added to the group, you will receive an email once a month about volunteering.  The volunteer request email is usually sent about 2 weeks before the next volunteer opportunity.  If you are able to volunteer simply sign up for a shift.  If you have a conflict, you are welcome to sign up in the future at a time that works with your schedule.  We ask that volunteers officially sign up, rather than just show up on the night of Food Distribution.
