Learn about the 2017-2018 Theme “Walk humbly with your God” and Logo

Our mission is to “Walk with youth into a personal and transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.”

St. Timothy’s Office of Youth Ministry provides programs and events for both middle and high school students. The high school youth group meets on Sundays from 6:30-8:30pm in the school cafeteria. The middle school youth group meets monthly on Saturday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm in the school cafeteria. Come by and see how much fun you can have with faith, friends, and of course food!

Youth group is an environment of fun and friendship where all are striving together to enter into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Besides youth group there are various retreats, service opportunities, and social events. During the summer months in addition to regular Sunday nights, the youth group attends the Steubenville Conference at Franciscan University in Steubenville Ohio as well as the Diocesan Workcamp.

There is something for everyone at St. Timothy’s youth group so come on over Sunday night and check it out or contact Christina or Patrick to learn more or with any questions!

St. Timothy youth ministry strives to bring the love of Christ to all youth and to challenge them to a life in Christ through prayer, service and fellowship so that they may live more freely and fully.

Christina Jacobeen – Coordinator of Youth Ministry

Hello! It is an honor to serve at St. Timothy’s and the story of how God brought me here is nothing short of a miracle. I love working at St. Timothy’s in such an amazing community of people all dedicated to serving Christ and loving one another. I’m from Ohio and a part of a large Italian family so I love food and my favorite ice cream is chocolate chip made by Greater’s (it’s found at ‘Sheetz’ gas stations… so, hint hint).

Lastly, I’d like to share with you my favorite quote: “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope I do not have a single bit of talent left and could say, I used everything you gave me. It is an amazing gift to be called to a position where your primary concern is to give until it hurts, and then give more.” ~Mother Teresa

Sincerely,

Patrick Jacobeen – Coordinator of Youth Ministry

Hi! I’m so happy to be back at St. Timothy’s parish after working as a campus minister and youth director in Charlotte, NC! It is so exciting to be a part of this vibrant community, especially the youth programs. Some things you might want to know about me, are that I love playing sports, music, and I love Jesus Christ and the Catholic faith with my whole heart. I look forward to getting to know you better and walking with you into a personal and transforming relationship with Jesus Christ. Stop by the office of youth ministry sometime and say hello, have some mac ‘n cheese, or just come and hangout! See you Sunday night at youth group! God bless you!

In Christ’s love,

Patrick pjacobeen@sttimothyparish.org 703-814-7994.

There are multiple ways to get involved if you are an adult who loves young people!

Mentors/Youth Ministers/Adults who love Christ: Are you an adult who loves Christ & teens? We are looking for a constant adult presence on Sunday nights (6:30-8:30pm) to walk with our teens as they explore their faith. What does an adult do at a youth group meeting? Sit with the teens, learn their names, listen, guide discussions, give a talk, be a leader, play games, laugh, smile and have fun! We are in need of adults to help support our growing high school youth program. Contact Patrick Jacobeen at 703-814-7994 or pjacobeen@sttimothyparish.org to find out how you can serve.

Food Ministry

I have great memories of joyful gatherings with family and friends, often centered around sharing a meal, and I’m sure you do to! Our Sunday night suppers are one of the most important parts of our ministry to the youth in our parish! The suppers are a perfect opportunity for fellowship and ministry. Through the suppers the teens feel the love of the parish. Please take the time and effort to cook for us one Sunday night! We truly appreciate your generosity!!!

2017 Work Camp media coverage

 

Every year over seven hundred high school teens from the Diocese of Arlington spend one week together helping to repair and add to the homes of those who are less fortunate. Throughout the week the teens along with adult chaperones and contractors encounter Jesus Christ through the Sacraments, talks, music, the residents they serve, and each other. Work Camp is a life-changing experience that teaches the value of serving others, working with others, but most importantly of knowing Jesus Christ and sharing His love with those we meet.

WorkCamp is a week-long service project designed to teach our youth to follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ through service work. We will paint, drywall, make roofing repairs or replacement, build wheel chair ramps and outhouses and many other desperately needed home repair projects for elderly, physically, mentally or financially challenged people.

More Than 11,000 Proclaim “Life Is VERY Good!”

Thousands of teens from the Arlington Diocese and across the country gathered on January 18 and 19 at Life is VERY Good to prayerfully prepare for the March for Life. See what it looks like when thousands of young people join together and proclaim that “Life Is VERY Good!”

 

“Everyone has the right to life, and it’s our duty to protect the right of life for those who are unborn to those who are near the end of their life,” said one teen. “That’s why we’re here.”

CHIVALRY BALL  is March 3rd 2018,  6:30pm-9:00pm

 

Panache, style and elegance are back in youth social events 

 

The Chivalry Ball is and evening organized by our young Catholic High School men and held in the hall of St Timothy’s. Some teens have referred to this evening as the “best night of their lives “.

 

Why is this night so special? Because the High School Men of St Timothy’s plan every detail of the night. They prepare the dinner, the music, the decorations, and gifts for the girls.  Patrick speaks to them about what it means to be a man  in this Church community. He helps them understand this event is not a romantic one but a selfless one where the young men think only of serving others. There are no dates, no slow dances, no pressure. The girls in return will discuss the idea: when a generation of ladies arise, a generation of gentlemen will follow. The girls are simply asked to RECEIVE on this night and let go of control and enjoy and experience what it is like to be treated with respect and dignity. Also, we ask the girls to dress with respect and dignity out of respect for the young men who are working so hard. 

 

This year we are bringing in professional swing dancers that will do a dance demo and teach the teens for an hour. 

 

If you are a teen and are not involved yet, or need service hours, please contact us! You don’t want to miss this!

 

Soon you will find the invitation to the Chivalry Ball and the Dress Standards for the Ladies.

 
YOU MUST RSVP!
 

We are excited and looking forward to this special event!
