    Junior High BASH 2012 – Your Place in God’s Plan

    Chris Johnson No Comments

    Sunday, April 29th saw hundreds of junior high school teens descend on PVI high school for BASH, an annual event sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, Office of Youth Ministry. The teens had tons of fun with the rides and inflatables, as well as watching the performance by APEX ministry; which included jokes, juggling, and more. Teens also had an opportunity for confession, participated in Mass with Bishop Loverde and ate a ton of pizza and snow cones.Junior High Bash 5

    Many Youth Apostle brothers were in attendance. Fr. Ramon, Y.A. and Jonathan Mundell brought a group from the Don Bosco Center. Erik Teter and Chris Maimone were there with teens from St. Leo’s. Chris Hitzelberger also brought teens from Blessed Sacrament. Deacon Tom Yehl, Y.A.  proclaimed the Gospel at Mass, with Mike Power (among others) providing music. Sean McCartney was even on hand to help dish out pizza as well as other behind the scene duties. We also saw Joey Clem give some great advice to the teens at a panel discussion on vocations. And of course, Kevin Bohli MC’d the event (and even enjoyed a snow cone).

    BASH is our largest gathering of Catholic junior high students (6th-8th graders) every year! This event is a celebration of our Catholic faith and love of the Lord.

    Special thanks to Chris Hitzelberger and Chris Maimone for contributing photographs and a summary for this article.
