Youth Ministry


Hello, my name is Ashley Huss and I am the Director of Youth Ministry here at St. Apollinaris.

From an early age I felt the call to become a missionary so that I could serve and grow deeper in my relationship to Christ. In July of 2014 I became a missionary and was sent to Washington DC, where I served for two years teaching religious educaitons, leading girls clubs, youth groups, camps and retreats in many different diocese along the east coast. Since then, my heart has been set afire to serve in youth ministry. Since I moved back to California, I have led the local diocesan summer camp, mission trip, youth day, and worked as youth minister at St. Anthony of Padua parish in Novato. 

Currently, I am studying to finish my degree in theology through Holy Apostles College. I feel very blessed to be given the opportunity to serve at my home parish in youth ministry.

My job consists in leading the Confirmation program, youth group, and working with parish families to enhance our youth programs. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and sharing my passion for youth ministry.
