Emmaus for High School Youth

View all ministries

We desperately need adult volunteers in order to restart Emmaus this fall! If you can commit even just one Saturday night a month, please email general@queenofapostles.org or call 703-354-8711 ext. 10. Meetings usually last from 8-10pm. Thank you!

Emmaus provides a place for high schoolers to grow through spiritual and human formation, sharing, and friendship.

The first Friday of the month is Open Gym, where we play sports with high school and college students in the Queen of Apostles Gym. Pizza is provided afterwards, followed by prayer and/or a talk on how to live our faith.

Other Friday activities include activities such as Adoration, an Apostolic Project, and discussions on living the Catholic faith. Emmaus meetings are held at the Notre Dame Graduate School (4407 Sano Street).

On a rotating basis, assist with supervising Open Gym and other Emmaus activities. 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 (703-354-8711 ext. 10).
