Sports Program

Filipino Ministry participates in recent (Catholic Youth Organization)Diocesan CYO Fall Tennis League running from Oct 1, 2006 – Nov 12, 2006. The Filipino Ministry of St. Timothy in Chantilly, VA coached by Fil Am Tennis of NOVA members Jose Macaranas, Carlos Unson, and David Lacsamana led the CYO St.Timothy Tennis Team into their first year of involvement in the CYO program. While the Filipino Ministry of St. Bernadette in Springfield, VA coached by Fil Am Tennis of NOVA members Carlos Santiago, Terrence Gabriel, Dindo Gonzalez, parishioner Juan Murro, and Jeff Biery led the CYO St. Bernadette in a comeback to the CYO Tennis Program. Both initiatives in the Parishes were organized and coordinated by Ed Tiong working with John Campbell, Youth Minister of St.Bernadette and Peter Grau, Sports Commissioner of St. Timothy. With the successful season, the Filipino Ministry in association with the Fil Am Tennis of Northern Virginia embarks on a long term plan in incorporating other Fil Ministry Parish based groups into next year’s CYO Tennis. This includes possible participation from All Saints Parish in Manassas, Holy Family in Dale City, Our Lady of Good Counsel in Vienna, and Christ the Redeemer in Sterling, VA.
