Youth of the Year: Luke Williams

Each year the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Woman hosts a Mass to honor the Woman and Youth of the Year for each parish throughout the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

This year's Archdiocesan Woman and Youth of the Year Mass will be held this Saturday, April 6th at 10:30am here at OLA! They will also be recognized at the Sunday 5:30pm Mass on April 7th.


 Our Youth of the Year for 2024 is Luke Williams!

Luke has served our parish in a number of ways over the past several years and we are very excited to give him this honor.

Luke has been a steady presence at any and all Youth Group events over the last four years, and has showed a willingness to step up to volunteer for anything big or small; whether it’s leading the group in a prayer or helping with an activity we are doing that evening, he can always be counted on!

In addition to this, Luke has served as a Confirmation Teen Leader in the last two years where he has led and walked with several of our teens as they prepare to be Confirmed. Both by leading small groups and sharing his testimony with the entire group, Luke has helped make our Confirmation Program an incredible experience over the couple of years as a leader. If you come to the Sunday 5:30 Mass, you will recognize Luke as someone who helps distribute Communion and usher almost every week! This year, he also stepped up to help serve as a retreat leader for our Winter Retreat, where he mentored younger teens in small groups and helped plan the weekend.

Outside of OLA, Luke is a student at Chamblee High School, where he is very active in activities such as water polo, swim and dive, baseball, and  National Honors Society. During the summer months, Luke is very active at Hampton Hall as the Head Lifeguard and Assistant Swim Coach, where he enjoys coaching kids of all ages for the Hampton Hall Waves swim team.

Luke will be attending the University of Georgia in the Fall and plans to study Finance. Please join us in congratulating Luke and thanking him for all he has given to our parish community over the last several years!
