Youth Ministry

The Little Flower High School Group is open to all 9th to 12th grade student parishioners (and their friends). The purpose is to meet other teens who take their faith seriously, have fun, and deepen and mature your relationship with Jesus Christ. We have several opportunities each month to get together.

Dogma and Donuts

The High School Group meets on the second Sunday of the month for a dynamic discussion to learn more about our Catholic faith, ask questions, and connect with other kids from all the area schools. And, yes, there will be donuts! The monthly meeting is from 11:00 am - 12 pm in the Rectory Meeting Room. All participants are welcome to go directly to 12 Noon Mass as a group. If you have any questions, please contact Laurie Yang at

Mass and Social

The High School group will gather for a Monthly Youth Mass and Dinner at the 5 pm every third Sunday of the month in the Rectory Meeting Room. If you have any questions, please contact send an email to

HSG Summer Service Trip

Dear High School Students and Parents,

This summer The Church of the Little Flower will be teaming up with two nearby parishes – Blessed Sacrament in Chevy Chase and Our Lady of Mercy in Potomac – for a unique and powerful experience of faith in action ministering to those in need in the city of New York. This is the second summer service trip our parish has offered--last year our high school students went to West Virginia to repair homes in Appalachia. It was meaningful, rewarding and memorable week!

This year's theme for our service trip is “Seeing the Face of Jesus.” Whether our activity is working in a soup kitchen, setting up for a youth camp, hanging out with friends, going to Mass, or walking the streets of New York – our goal is to encounter and recognize the face of Jesus Christ. The experience is an opportunity for our students to grow in their Catholic faith and build new friendships over the course of the week.

I have attached a more detailed description of the trip, as well as an application. I encourage all current high school students to read the materials and consider applying. Space will be limited. So, if you are interested, I recommend that you return this application as soon as possible and no later than March 16th. Complete applications can be dropped off at the rectory or scanned and e-mailed to

Thank you for your consideration, and I’m very excited to be working with as many of you as possible this summer! In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or to Laurie Yang who is helping to organize this trip.

Sincerely in Christ,

Fr. Lewis
