“Were not our hearts burning within us while He spoke to us on the way?”- Luke 24:32 

IGNITE seeks to accompany young people in grades 6-8 on their journey of faith, pointing out the loving works and very near presence of the Lord in their day to day life.

IGNITE gathers on Friday evenings (EXCEPT ON FIRST FRIDAYS) from 7:30pm-9pm in the parish hall. All students in grades 6-8 are encouraged to attend. The evenings include food, music, games, prayer, and learning. This year we will also be going to BASH a diocesan rally for youth in Middle School as well as having day retreats, service opportunites, picnics, sports, and more!

“I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing! “- Luke 12:49

ABLAZE seeks to empower high school students to put their faith into action through evangelization and works of mercy.

ABLAZE gathers on Sundays (EXCEPT ON 2nd SUNDAYS). All teens in grades 9-12 are invited to join us in the parish hall for dinner, games, prayer, and opportunities to grow in knowledge of our Catholic faith on Sundays from 1:30pm to 4pm. This year, we will be going on retreats and pilgrimage as well as discovering how the Lord is inviting us to use our gifts and talents to serve others and spread the Gospel.


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
