Emmaus for High School Youth

View all ministries

Meeting on Fridays (except the last Friday of the month) from 6:00-8:00 PM, Emmaus provides a place of growth in Catholic life through spiritual and human formation, sharing, and friendship.

On the first Friday of the month is Open Gym. We play sports with high school and college students at the Queen of Apostles Gym. After the sporting activities, pizza is provided, followed by prayer and/or a talk on how to live our faith.

Other Fridays include activities such as Adoration, an Apostolic Project, and discussions on living the Catholic faith. Emmaus meetings are held at Notre Dame Graduate School (4407 Sano Street). Additionally, students may attend a Bible Study on Thursday nights, 6:00-7:30 PM.

Some activities are being planned to be held on weekends.

All adult volunteers, 18 years and older and not in high school, who work with youth are required by the Diocese of Arlington, Office for the Protection of Children/Young People to complete Virginia Background Check paperwork (notary to sign one of the pages) as well as to attend a VIRTUS seminar within 45 days of starting volunteering. The adult volunteer packet is available from the parish office.
