YOU GET TO CHOOSE
During the month of April, we will NOT have small group sessions. Instead, each candidate must pick an IGNITE event to attend. Will it be a concert at the XL Center
on April 2 or a youth rally at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph on April 30?
On Sunday, April 2, fifty teens attended the K-Love
(106.9 FM) concert at the XL Center.
Join us for a youth rally on April 30 at the cathedral!
WHAT IS A CATHOLIC YOUTH RALLY?
A Catholic Youth Rally is an opportunity for Catholic teens to experience the Universal Church. The Alive in Christ Youth Rally is the first youth rally in the Archdiocese of Hartford. Youth Groups from churches around the Hartford, Litchfield, and New Haven counties will gather for music, food, speakers, Mass with Archbishop Blair, and Adoration with Father Jeff Gubbiotti.
It will be a great day to gather in faith together!

This is a safety and self-awareness program that is a requirement of Office of Safe Environment at the Archdiocese of Hartford in response to the safe environment mandate from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
The USCCB expects that all, "churches, schools, and youth organizations must ensure that children and youth who worship, study, or participate in activities sponsored by a parish can do so in the safest and most secure setting possible."
The curriculum incorporates small group discussion and a newscast that was recently filmed by IGNITE Youth Ministry. The Catholic faith is consistently incorporated throughout the night highlighting the power of prayer and the work of the Holy Spirit which we often credit as our conscious. Our newscast even covers the question, "Why doesn't God prevent someone from using these lures?"
