“Were not our hearts burning within us while He spoke to us on the way?”- Luke 24:32 

IGNITE seeks to accompany young people in grades 6-8 on their journey of faith, pointing out the loving works and very near presence of the Lord in their day to day life.

IGNITE gathers on Friday evenings (EXCEPT ON FIRST FRIDAYS) from 7:30pm-9pm in the parish hall. All students in grades 6-8 are encouraged to attend. The evenings include food, music, games, prayer, and learning. This year we will also be going to BASH a diocesan rally for youth in Middle School as well as having day retreats, service opportunites, picnics, sports, and more!

Board Game Nights- All youth in grades 6-12 are invited to join us once a month on the 3rd Mondays from 7pm-8:30pm for a fun study break and evening of board games in the JPII Modular. 

LifeGuards– Courageous youth in grades 8-12 are sought to defend the sacredness of all human life. LifeGuards gather twice a month, once to learn about the Church’s teachings on some of the most relevant and important pro-life topics of the day and another occasion to peacefully stand in prayer outside of a local abortion facility. Contact us today for more information! 

Here are the answers to some FAQs:

1. Do you have to be a St. Veronica parishioner to participate in Youth Apostolate activities? NO. Any young person in grades 6-12 is encouraged to attend. So please spread the word! Youth are welcome to invite their friends! 

2. Do you have to be Catholic to participate in Youth Apostolate activities? NO. Any young person can attend! We welcome youth of all faiths and those without a faith background. 

3. Do you have to sign up to come every week? NO. We have many different groupings, trips, retreats, work camps, and service project options.
