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. Kick-off is scheduled for August 23 from 7:00-9:00 PM. More info will follow in the weeks to come.
