IGNITE! High School Religious Education (Grades 9-12)
Contact Person: Mrs. Lindsay Lege
Contact Information: Please direct questions to our Church Parish Office.
All IGNITE! activities are mandatory for students who are registered in religious education for Grades 9-12.
Our IGNITE! program combines high school religious education with three years of Sacramental preparation for Holy Confirmation and one year of "Fresh Fire" for confirmed teens.
IGNITE! Sessions will be held on Sunday evenings after the 5:00 Youth Mass dismisses. The sessions are expected to begin at approximately 6:00 p.m. and end at approximately 8:00 p.m. A mandatory high school retreat for students in Year 1 and Year 2 of our high school program will also be scheduled. (NOTE: A high school retreat is not a substitute for a Confirmation retreat!) Our 2019-20 Schedule of Classes will soon be linked to this page.
NOTE: Candidates in Year 3 of Sacramental Preparation must also attend monthly Confirmation luncheons, and a Confirmation retreat (not to be confused with a high school retreat). Those dates are available on our current Schedule of Classes.
Students who choose to attend a Steubenville Conference or other area retreats during the course of the year will have to pay the necessary registration, lodging, and transportation fees set up by those churches and organizations. Attending those events as a "make-up" retreat is a choice and is not included in the family's registration fees for our church parish.
Service Projects for our high school program:
- All high school students will be taught how to serve during Mass (as altar servers, lectors, gift bearers, and ushers) and will be expected to serve at least once during the school year.
- Other service projects may be announced at a later date
