Ablaze

St. Catherine of Siena urged, "Be who you were created to be and you will set the whole world on fire." Through social, spiritual, educational, and service experiences, Ablaze aims at kindling the spark that will enable you to flourish as the human being you were created to be, living life to the full. High school aged teens meet weekly on Sundays to have fun and grow together, as well as challenge and support one another, while entering more deeply into a relationship with our Lord.

Celebrate

Celebrate
The Celebrate Team is composed of high school seniors aided by adult advisors and meets weekly from September through March.  The Celebrate Program incorporates Scripture, faith-sharing, personal witness, and sacramental formation while inviting seniors into a deeper relationship with the Lord as part of a close-knit Christian community.  The program culminates with a weekend retreat for juniors in March.

Celebrate Weekend
Facilitated by a team of high school seniors, the Celebrate Weekend is a special retreat designed for juniors only.  A unique experience, this retreat nurtures a sense of community while creating an opportunity for all involved to enrich their relationship with the Lord.

National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC)

Taking place November 16 - 18, 2017, this pilgrimage will gather together approximately 25,000 Catholic teens from throughout the United States at the Indianapolis Convention Center and the Indianapolis Colts’ Lucas Oil Stadium.  The National Catholic Youth Conference is an exciting 3-day (plus a travel day) event of prayer, community, and empowerment for Catholic teenagers.  This pilgrimage is an amazing opportunity to meet Catholic youth from all over the nation while learning more about yourself and your relationship to our Lord, Jesus Christ, through the Catholic Church.  The theme for 2017’s NCYC is “Called.”  If interested, contact Natalie Wardle.

Summer Youth Conference (SYC)

A unique weekend event designed to be a powerful encounter with our Lord, especially through the Sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation, but also through the help of a  terrific live band and engaging keynote speakers, this year’s Summer Youth Conference theme is “Elevate,” based on Revelation 21:5, “Behold, I make all things new.”  The SYC not only provides the inspiration to live our faith more fully and authentically, but also provides the practical tools we need to do so.  Registration will take place the first week of November, so please contact Natalie Wardle before November for more information or to reserve your place!

Good Friday Passion Reading

Teens from the parish meet weekly during Lent to memorize and recite the account of our Lord’s Passion and Death according to the Gospel of John.  The group then presents the Gospel at 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. liturgies on Good Friday. This much-appreciated ministry to the parish is also an excellent opportunity for participants to grow spiritually as they enter more deeply into the mystery of our Lord’s Passion, Death, and Resurrection and reflect on what those events mean in their own lives.  Contact Natalie Wardle if interested in this ministry.
