IGNITE- All youth in grades 6-8 are invited to join us on Friday nights (excluding the first Fridays of the month) from 7:30pm-9:00pm, for evenings of fun, faith, prayer, and friendship. This year, our IGNITE students will be studying the lives of the saints. Each week we will hear familiar and lesser known stories of these amazing individuals and their lives of heroic virtue. Our Ignite evenings include fun activities; growing in friendship with other Catholic youth; prayer; discipleship; faith formation and more!
ABLAZE- All youth in grades 9-12 are invited to join us on Sunday evenings (excluding the third Sundays of the month) from 6pm-8:30pm in the JPII modular. This Fall we are excited to be learning Thomistic philosophy, simplified for high-school students! The intent is to form our young people in the truth and to prepare them for the false philosophies that they might encounter in college. Each class includes practical applications that are familiar to our youth. More information about the content for each week is available by emailing us at email@example.com Sunday nights also include cooking dinner together, prayer, and fun activities and games.
TEAM- Our Youth Apostolate Team consists of parents and single adults who have answered the call to serve the middle and high school youth of parish. These individuals receive regular formation on discipleship, ministry planning, praying with teens, leading small groups, youth safety, and more! The team gathers on the first Fridays of the month for Mass, dinner, and formation. During these gatherings we pray for our parish young people and continue to grow to understand how the Lord is inviting us to lead youth into a deeper relationship with Him. If you have thought that God might be calling you to serve youth in our parish, please contact our Coordinator of Youth Ministry for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
