Service Opportunities

In the Community: Volunteering in the community is important to us!  Opportunities include serving the homeless in the food pantry at Christ House in Alexandria and visiting the elderly at Sunrise Senior Living in Burke. The Special Olympics also looks for volunteers to help with their basketball tournaments.

At Nativity:  You can volunteer with Religious Education/Youth Ministry/CYO Coach/ Nativity Players Theater Ministry. We have more information to share- just contact Alison.

At Mass: When you come to Mass, everything runs so smoothly, right? You may not realize there is always a need for new lectors, greeters, ushers, Eucharistic Ministers, and choir members. We need you! You have gifts to share! Check out opportunities to serve as a liturgical minister. Just contact Alison Fram if you’d like some information.

Globally: Operation Starfish, our thriving ministry with Haiti, is 20 years old this year! You can also get involved with two special Operation Starfish projects- Stella Marina and Fish4Hope.

Upcoming Events

Meet our Director

Welcome to YA Ministry! I was born and raised in Burke (rare, I know) and attended Nativity growing up. I have a BA in Theology from Mount St. Mary’s University and have been working in parish ministry since 2012. I think finding a faith community post-college is one of the most difficult things, and I’ve loved helping to create that for my peers. Let’s get some coffee and talk!

Meet our Program Assistant

Hi! I’m Mary.
If I’m not in the Youth Ministry Room managing Instagram accounts, then you can find me at Trader Joe’s buying 72% Dark Chocolate or in a field practicing photography.

My job is to assist Alison in any way I can to make sure that our ministries run smoothly and attract more people to Jesus Christ. Contact us anytime for more information about what our College, Young Adult, and Family ministries have to offer you.

God bless, and we hope to see you soon!
