IGNITE! Discipleship Groups
Due to the pandemic, we are being challenged with having to limit our group sizes for some things. Many parishes in the area have been successful in moving to a small faith based community format for youth ministry. We have decided to explore that format in light of our current situation.
Based on Acts 2:42, D Cells are small Christian Communities that provide a weekly opportunity for teens to share life and prayer. D Cells are made up of 6-8 teens lead by 2-3 Adult Evangelists. Weekly meetings will be held at St. Francis of Assisi Parish two or three times a month. Once a month all D Cells will gather together as a larger community.
D Cells are now forming…click here to sign-up for a D Cell.
Also new this year is a program called CATHOLIC MATTERS for high school teens and their families. Our Senior High Youth Ministry will offer opportunities for our high school students and their families to dive deeper into current topics and issues in light of our Catholic faith, Catholic Church teaching and our own lived experiences as a way to become more informed and to grow as the missionary disciples that God calls us to be.
We will explore topics such as racism, Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ+, Science and Religion, Mary and the Saints and many more. Several of these topics will be offered in a mini-series format.
