WAY is the high school youth ministry program at St. Charles. During the school year, we meet most Sunday nights 7:00-9:00 PM at the church where we get together, in a laid-back atmosphere, to talk about things that matter to teens, especially as they relate to faith. High school teens (and their friends) are always welcome, no matter how many WAYs they have/or haven't attended. Our mission is: Empowering high school aged youth to trust, love, and serve God by incorporating Church teaching and Tradition into a Catholic WAY of life.
WAY Wednesday is changing the location to ALL ABOUT BURGER!
Every 1st Wednesday of the month come have a meal on St Charles starting October 2nd 7:30-8:30pm. Milkshakes, fries, burgers, and fellowship! Feel free to invite a friend.
Bishop Burbidge invites all teens of the Diocese to join him at RALLY 2019! This annual event is an opportunity for the young Church in the Diocese of Arlington to gather each year to pray, learn, and celebrate the Catholic faith. RALLY includes Mass with Bishop Burbidge, Eucharistic Adoration, inspirational speakers and entertainers, breakout sessions, inflatable games, music, and more!
RALLY is designed to be open to any high school aged youth wanting to attend, at any stage in their faith journey.
In 2018, over 800 teens and adult leaders from 50 parishes and missions attended RALLY. Our goal is to have all 70 parishes and 5 missions participating in this event. If you have a child in high school, we encourage you to call your parish to see if they will be participating. Perhaps if they are not already planning to participate, this will change if they hear that there are interested families!

WHERE: Bishop O’Connell High School, Arlington, VA
COST: $25.00 per participant (youth and adults), which includes all of the great entertainment above, dinner, and snacks.
