HIGH SCHOOL (7TH-12TH GRADE) meets Thursdays 6:30PM - 8:30PM


Ignite is an opportunity for students to dive deeper into their Catholic faith while building friendship and community. The group is headed by Marilene DeSantis, and it is a great time for the youth of the Parish to connect and meet with other youth.   It involves plenty of sports time, a snack, and prayer and a short lesson with the other youth.  All new and current families are welcome to join us for Ignite!  

Our program rotates between the theology of the body and lessons. We have many outside activities such as:  bowling; movie nights; fund raising; service projects; guest speakers approved by father King; annual parties; youth group;  family mass at 6:00 pm on Saturday nights and brunch once a month.

The name YOUCAT hasn't got anything to do with "yellow cats".

It is the abbreviation of YOUTH and CATECHISM.

First of all, YOUCAT is a real catechism, which means a reliable book for teaching faith. It has thus been approved by the Austrian bishops' conference and examined by the congregation of faith in Rome.

The word Youth only refers to the book's young language and modern design. It is not a simplified version of religion. That means that is equally great for Adults to read.


But YOUCAT also stands for YOU & CATECHISM, which means: make the whole religious wealth, which has been growing for 2000 years since Jesus appeared on earth, to your own thing. Once you have the YOUCAT in your system, you are a real professional in faith. You will be able to explain, for example, why there is only one God and not many in the Christian belief. And you will have a great basis to be able to give others the gift of faith too.
