Welcome to ArroW, the youth discipleship of St. Agnes & St. William of York! We’re glad you’re here. Our community is always open as we deepen our friendships with each other and with Christ. No matter who you are, family can be found here! Make sure to follow us @YMsaintsAW on Instagram and Facebook for the latest updates and inspiration.

Middle School ArroW is open to grades 5-8 and currently meets twice a month. We have a few different offerings:

  • First Fridays are a time for faith, fun, and seeing how it all fits together by learning about God and His Church in new ways through exciting activities. There is always plenty of healthy competition (ESPECIALLY boys vs. girls) to go around. 

  • Third Thursdays are fun virtual nights of games and discussion 

  • We also attend the Rise Up Middle School Rally put on by the Archdiocese of Baltimore and Ablaze Family Ministries!

  • COMING SOON: Siena Squad Middle School Girls’ ministry, to help our young women learn how they can (and should!) be leaders in the Church. Interested in being a part of starting up this new ministry? Interested in leading a parallel boys’ group? Reach out!

SummerStretch is our annual summer service camp for middle school participants and high school peers. This year's SummerStretch will be from July 26-30, 2021, held both on the St. Agnes campus and at our collaborating parish, Our Lady of Victory.

Registration is now OPEN for SummerStretch 2021! We can’t wait to have this week of service, prayer, and fellowship with your middle schoolers! Here are some details for you before you register:

 

  • SummerStretch will be held July 26-30 from 9am – 2pm each day. This is an earlier end time than in years past. 

  • Due to COVID safety precautions, all service will be done on-site—so to vary the service opportunities for participants, Monday & Tuesday (26-27) will be held at St. Agnes while Wednesday & Thursday (28-29) will be held at Our Lady of Victory. 

  • Friday will be a Picnic at Patapsco State Park, including Chick-fil-A! (In lieu of Hershey due to COVID safety precautions.)

  • Registration is open to rising 6-9th graders—and you don’t need to be a parishioner (or Catholic, though we will be praying together and learning all about Catholic social teaching while we serve) to participate! 

  • Cost is $175 for the first child, $125 for your second child registered, and $100 for each subsequent child registered. A non-refundable deposit of $50 per child is due upon registering, with the remainder being due by July 16th, 2021. This funds materials for participants and for service projects, food, and some EXCITING afternoon activities! (If the cost poses an obstacle to registering, please reach out—we don’t want that to be an obstacle to a young person being involved with service and community.)



You can register here: https://forms.gle/nD2DDkPLDNc4J1Sf7. Please also complete the following permission form (     ) which is required for attendance (and for which there is an optional place to submit a scan in the registration.) If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!
