The high school years are some of the toughest AND most enlightening in a person’s life. Teens are learning who they are, who God is, and how that relates to the world around them. Ablaze will offer weekly gatherings for teens to come spend time together, pray together, and seek how our Catholic faith is a trustworthy guide for navigating through life’s ups and downs. Why be Catholic? Come find out here. What does the Bible have to do with life today? Come find out here. Is there really truth, how do you know for sure, and why does it matter? What does it have to do with me? What is my place in this world? Come be challenged, accepted, and known. We will spend the year building up the community, growing together, and challenging each other with sports, events like movie nights and adoration nights, and bi-weekly small groups to discuss various topics. We will meet weekly on Sundays. Keep your eye on our Facebook page for upcoming dates this year.
Save the Date: The Ablaze kickoff for 2022-23 is already scheduled! Join us on August 28 from 7:00-9:00 PM. More info will follow later this year.

Created, A Theology of the Body Retreat
Discover God’s Plan For Love And Life!
Pregnancy Center East is offering youth in the Cincinnati area an opportunity to attend the FREE Theology of the Body Teen Retreat this summer! There will be games, reflection, and discussion as we dive into the essence of what it means to be human and how we are called to love.
What To Expect
Identity. Love. Chastity. The world is a difficult place for teens, and it has become increasingly hard for parents and educators to help teens discover the truth about their bodies, sexuality, and their unique call to love.
In an age of “selfies” and egocentrism, Pope St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body cuts through the noise to present an authentic view of the human person. It shows young people the extraordinary story of their creation as unrepeatable individuals. The program doesn’t stop there–Theology of the Body introduces teens to the truth that life is not, in fact, all about them; it is about going out of themselves to be a sincere gift to others.
