Ascend for Boys and Girls


 Ascend meets on 1st & 3rd Fridays of the month from 6:45-7:30 p.m in the PAC (Parish Activity Center)

Ascend is a dynamic Catholic Youth Ministry program for boys & girls from 6th-8th grade to grow in knowledge of their Catholic faith, friendship with Christ, and make a difference and positive impact on their families, friends and in the world around them. We explore what we believe as Catholics and how it impacts our daily lives, pulling from the readings for the following Sunday. This group is special for the close knit and small group environment compared to our larger group activity for the night, Mania,  directly following our Ascend program.
