Hi there!

We’re so glad you found us – welcome to Seton Lake Ridge Youth Ministry!
We are an active family of youth, adult ministers and catechists, and parents who desire to grow closer to Christ and live out our Catholic faith. The Sacraments are our lifeblood. The Church is our second home. And we always have room for others in our hearts and at our tables!

Our Ministry Mission
To help fill the God-sized hole in the hearts of our youth.

Our Ministry Goal
In imitation of our Mama Mary, and in communion with the saints, we strive to give God our personal and intentional FIAT (our yes!) every day.

For more information about the ministry and ways to get involved, please call, email, or stop by the parish office and ask for:

Melissa Maleski
Director of

Live the life you were made for – in Christ and with His Church!

The Arlington Diocese Youth Ministry Theme for 2021-2022

What We Do

Youth Ministry offers the youth of our parish and their friends the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and practice of the Catholic faith through a variety of events.  Most of our events are rooted in the cycles and seasons of the liturgical year—a way of life that we at the parish call Via Vita. They guide our ministry in making our mission and goal a reality in each of our youth and the adults to support them.

Families, please note:
By participating in the youth ministry and its activities, it is implied that parents give St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish permission for their teen’s photo to be taken and used for educational and/or marketing purposes. If you do not want your teen’s photo taken, please contact Melissa directly.
