BRISTOL-- The mission of Addison County Catholic Youth Ministry is to create a community to support the growth and education of the next generation of Catholics through fellowship, study, service and activities.
 
It serves the parishes of St. Peter in Vergennes, St. Ambrose in Bristol and Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Middlebury with different programming and events for youth of all ages. This includes monthly family nights, bi-weekly high school nights and monthly middle school nights.
 
“We are striving to reach our youth where they are at, which means going to sporting events and recognizing their achievements, having active social media accounts and listening to their requests,” noted Emma Kalamarides, youth minister.
 
Addison County Catholic Youth Ministry has sent groups to the Vermont Catholic Youth Serve and Steubenville Conferences last year and will again this year. Youth also are involved in Totus Tuus, a summer program for children. Recurring events include games, a discussion on a topic of living out the faith and prayer.
 
“We have tried on integrate a mix of prayers throughout our meetings which include spontaneous prayer, meditations, the rosary, Stations of the Cross, Adoration and group intentions,” Kalamarides said.
