Ignite High School Youth Ministry

Ignite the Fire Within

Ignite is a small group experience committed to the reality that young people are an important and integral part of our parish community, and in fact are the Catholic Church.  Ignite seeks to build future leaders of the Church by fostering and nurturing the faith of our youth. Ignite leads our youth in their faith journey, and walks with them in the light of Christ by bringing them together with their peers and leaders for fellowship, fun and spiritual direction.

Ignite meets in the Youth Center bi-monthly, on Sunday’s from 5:30pm – 7:30pm (Alternating Sunday’s w/ Sparks)


In 2018-2019 IGNITE will incorporate Liturgical seasonal program nights throughout the year and walk through a program entitled, RX.  The program looks at the reality of the wound of sin and introduces Jesus as our Divine Physician, whose mercy we encounter in the confessional and who prescribes His own divine life to heal us. This is a great resource to introduce teens to the Person of Christ and the Gospel message.  Combining a good mix of other nights which will focus on Catholic social teaching on a variety of current issues that many of our teens are dealing with today this year will lead students into a deeper relationship with God and solid growth in His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
