    Here is the interview!

    mikeMike Filamor has been a Full Member of Youth Apostles since 1994.  He is currently the coordinator for Full Member Formation.  Since the summer of 2010, on a volunteer basis, he has served as coordinator of St. Veronica Young Adults, which is comprised of members in their 20s and 30s, singles and married people alike.  He just stepped down at the end of May this year after five years of service.  During Mie’s tenure, St. Veronica Young Adults has grown from a small handful of members to one of the fastest-growing youth adult groups in the Diocese of Arlington, drawing hundreds of young adults from all over the DC area to their big events and dozens to their high quality, thought-provoking studies.  Most of all, at the heart of it all is their welcoming, caring charism that has created a loving and thriving community of true brothers and sisters in Christ.

    St. Veronica Young Adults’ reputation has grown to the point of garnering regional and national media attention:

    Mike Filamor was interviewed by a fellow young adult and freelance writer in the National Catholic Register on January 4, 2015.  Mike relates the origins and tremendous growth of St. Veronica Young Adults the past 4 and a half years:

    Finally, EWTN heard about St. Veronica Young Adults because they own the National Catholic Register.  EWTN reached out to Mike Filamor in June and invited him to be interviewed on their 45-minute show Life on the Rock on August 14, 2015 at 8 pm. They asked that he bring another member of St. Veronica Young Adults to the interview.  The taping was on July 23, at EWTN headquarters in Alabama.

    According to EWTN, the topic will be “Michael Filamor and Linda Grijalba demonstrate how St. Veronica Young Adults has become one of the fastest-growing and most active young adult parish groups in the Diocese of Arlington.”

    Mike credits the Youth Apostles and his countless mentor brothers in community for getting him into ministry and inspiring and guiding him through the years.
