Antioch is one of our three youth communities here in San Antonio Parish, for people ages 16-21. There is a catchphrase we use in the community – a battle cry, if you will – “pass it on.” It is a simple phrase, yet rich in both history and what it ultimately stands for.

ANTIOCH SPORTSFEST 2015
by Mikee Atayde & Camille Villonco
This year’s sportsfest was one of a kind. Though, compared to the other years, this year had less people. Which was not a bad thing for us, no not at all! It was a great thing. Having less people made this activity more intimate, it brought everyone closer. This year’s sportsfest showed how one community such as Antioch, was able to bring many people together, people who came from different weekends and people who we had no clue ever existed. It was very nice to see the sportsmanship in each individual who participated and it was nice to see the teamwork shown in every group.
Having experienced such an activity brought us so much hope, it made us happy knowing that God works in mysterious ways and whatever he plans for us will always be what is right for us. Just like God, Antioch guides us to know what is right for us and shows us the love and compassion we truly deserve. We are both blessed to be a part of this community and blessed that we were able to be heads of this activity. We can’t wait for the many more activities this community will have for us that will be able to bring us all closer together.

For the very first time, when people talked about God and their strong beliefs towards their religion I decided to listen with an open mind and an open heart. As I was telling the friends I’ve made in Antioch, the experience for me in a single word would be: AMAZING. Continue reading….
Calling all young adults ages 16 to 21: Do you want to get closer to God, make new friends, and have fun all at the same time? Then join the next Antioch Weekend! A weekend of reflection, music, and prayer, for and by the Catholic youth.
