“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”
– St. Catherine of Sienna

Welcome to the Youth Ministry at St. Anthony of Padua, where together, we embark on an incredible adventure of faith and growth. Our vision is to cultivate a vibrant community of young disciples, empowering them to grow in faith, serve with compassion, and encounter Christ in every aspect of their lives. Here, we create meaningful experiences that leave a lasting impact, whether through engaging discussions, exciting events, or epic game nights.

In this community, we explore our faith, ask tough questions, and find joy in our journey with Christ. Our aim is to create an environment where our young people can truly grow into sainthood. Together, we build a community where faith, love, and genuine moments intertwine.

Let’s embark on this adventure together!

IGNITE: Youth Ministry for Middle School

Ignite is an exciting and dynamic program designed specifically for middle schoolers at St. Anthony of Padua. Our goal is simple: to set their hearts on fire for Christ. Whether they’re part of our Religious Education program or students at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School, Ignite is here to accompany and support them on their faith journey.

Through engaging lessons, games, and fun events, Ignite aims to build upon the foundation of faith that students receive at home, in religious education classes, or at school. From bowling with Father Tony to attending the Shine Youth Rally and hosting our first-ever “Pizza-lympics,” Ignite offers a variety of experiences that are both enriching and enjoyable.

As we finish our first year after a hiatus in Youth Ministry at St. Anthony, we’re excited about the possibilities ahead, including future mission trips and other impactful experiences. Ignite is more than just a program; it’s a community where young hearts can be ignited with the love of Christ, setting the stage for a lifelong journey of faith and discipleship.

Ignite meets on Sunday evenings from 5:00 – 6:30 PM.
