Our regular Ascend and Mania program will start back up on September 17th. Until then though, be sure to join us for our Middle School Summer Fun Days on July 2nd, 9th, & 16th as well as our Middle School Outing to Mini-Golf and Ice Cream on July 29th! 

ASCEND AND MANIA 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’ll explore what we believe as Catholics and how it impacts our daily lives, pulling from the readings for the following Sunday, Scripture, or even just current events related to our Faith.

Youth gather at All Saints (location is dependent on conditions/dates) and then they are greeted by out Middle School Core Team.  This Core Team is a combination of parents, young adults, and teens!  

Small groups are special for their close-knit environment and they perfectly compliment our spiritual talk for the night. Small groups of same sex and grade gives youth a time to develop relationships, discuss questions and concerns, and go a little deeper into their faith.

Our nights are filled with games, friends, small groups, talks, and hanging out. Main games and activities include Capture the Flag, Photo Scavenger Hunt, Life Size Clue, sports, etc… The night usually concludes with a reflection and prayer.

This special combined evening of Ascend & Mania is a great way to meet new faces and grow in fellowship with one another, nurturing a communal spirit rooted in Jesus Christ.

Plus, we also have monthly trips that include things like bowling, laser tag, and going to the movies.
