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.
WORKCAMP 2018 is an awesome week of fun, faith, and service. Youth and adult leaders from all over the Diocese of Arlington give up a week of summer vacation to follow in the footsteps of Christ by serving others. Work Campers do home repairs for the needy and elderly to make their homes warmer, drier, and safer. They also grow in their faith through the sacraments, speakers, fellowship, and service.
