Bishop Michael Burbidge, the newly installed Bishop of the Diocese of Arlington, visited Youth Apostles on Tuesday, March 21. He celebrated Mass and had dinner with our community.

After dinner, he joined us for a brief presentation by Mike Paquette, Fr. Tom, and Rob Tessier on the history, mission, and vision of Youth Apostles. Mike talked about our extensive candidate formation program and the thrust of our community to do youth ministry. As a priest in the Diocese, Fr. Tom told the Bishop how important it is to have consecrated clerics in community with single and married men. Rob spoke on his long career in youth ministry.

To conclude the evening, Bishop Burbidge asked the men present what the greatest needs of the youth are today and how we can meet those needs. The overall consensus was the plethora of distractions and options, and how it’s hard to compete for attention in the Northern Virginia area. Bishop commended us on our missionary zeal and apostolic thrust to serve the young people in the Diocese.

We were blessed to have the Bishop join us and be an active member of our special meeting with him that night. We continue to keep him in prayer as he begins his new ministry in our Diocese!

Golfers enjoy a great shot

There was a total of 96 golfers, who thoroughly enjoyed their day. The weather was perfect for golfing. The rain held off just long enough for all the golfers to get in a good round! The shotgun start sounded at 1pm, and golfers raced to get to a good hole. After the initial rush, foursomes started at the front and back nine’s to get a good day of golfing in.

Father’s Jack, David, Peter, and Tom were all in attendance to the delight of many.

Youth Apostles grossed $106,531 total dollars. There were a total of 14 volunteers, who all had a splendid time taking pictures, checking golfers in, and helping with setup.

It was a gorgeous day for golf, and we hope people will join us next year, May 11 at Raspberry Falls again!
