Students build a strong foundation of faith in a supportive community of their peers while exploring biblical stories. Learn more about the Rite 13 Group.
Following Rite 13, teens in the J2A class continue to develop skills they will need in adulthood. These include active listening, assertion, negotiation, partnership and leadership in Christian community. Learn more about the J2A Group.

Youth in Service
Youth at St. Alban’s have many opportunities to serve our brothers and sisters in Christ, both here at St. Alban's as ushers, acolytes, lay readers and singers, as well as more broadly in the DC area and in our region. Programs like the Salvation Army’s Grate Patrol help address the chronic issues of homelessness, hunger and substandard housing. Friends are always welcome to these events. Our youth rank these experiences as a way to put their faith into action.
For over a decade St. Alban's youth have participated in Grate Patrol. Our youth groups participate each month from September to June. We distribute the food we’ve prepared and often other items that have been collected. We put the food directly in the hands of the homeless of our nation’s capital. The connection to our baptismal covenant is made real over and over again. Learn more about Youth Grate Patrol.
Youth Mission Trip
This week-long annual mission trip takes youth ages 14-18 and their adult mentors to locations in rural Appalachia to repair homes in some of the poorest counties in our country. Working with St. Timothy's Episcopal Outreach Center in Kentucky, St. Alban's youth and adults repair homes and get to know the people of Estill County.
The mission trip is typically scheduled for the third week in June. Learn more about it here. For additional information, contact the Rev'd Yoimel Gonzalez Hernandez.
