Join Us Every 1st and 3rd Friday 6:45-8:30pm
Faith and Fun Combined into One Great Evening!

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.

For now, we are meeting outside behind the school. In the case of bad weather, we will be socially distanced in the gym. Please also bring a mask just in case! 

We are also offering a virtual alternative from 7:00-7:45pm. The password will be sent out via email to all teens registered for this year’s High School Ministry.

Youth gather at 6:45pm and are greeted by our All Saints Middle School Core Team.  This Core Team is a combination of parents, young adults, and teens!  We begin our talk at 7:00pm. Virtual participants can join at that time!  After our talk, kids will gather in small groups. 

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.

After that, we jump into a time for games, friends, and hanging out for the rest of the night. Main games and activities include Capture the Flag, Photo Scavenger Hunt and Life Size Clue. The night 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.
