Athletic Ministries

“And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned

unless he competes according to the rules.”

2 Timothy 5

The Athletic Ministries of our beloved Direct Archdiocesan District are about more than competition, as they provide an opportunity for the youngest members of our parishes to work together with their peers towards a common goal in a Christian atmosphere.  Together with our parish’s Sunday school, HOPE, JOY, and GOYA programs, various district level retreats, local and global outreach opportunities, our Athletic Ministries are an important part of the total youth ministry that takes place in our D.A.D. For over 30 years, the young people of our District have been afforded the opportunity to participate in various sporting events across the region. These Athletic Ministries have become an integral part of our children’s fellowship with each other and the Church, and provide a unique opportunity for those participating in the youth ministries of our Church.
