Fire Up!

What’s Fire Up?

These parish-wide events help keep the flame alive with our young people. Think, “Out of the Box” Youth Ministry. Events might include praise and worship music, a special speaker that resonates with teens, or any type of content that inspires. We have found that when we keep our youth “fired up” their relationship with Jesus grows deeper. Fire Up is designed specifically with your middle school and high school youth in mind, however all are welcome and we encourage families to attend. Come, join us!

“For our God is a consuming fire.”

Fall Kick-off: Friday, September 11th, 2020 — A jam packed evening where we kicked-off the upcoming Formation year. We enjoyed some seriously sweet music from local St. Paul worship band, In the Name Worship, awesome food from Chick-fil-A (for free!), a powerful talk on the Holy Spirit from Middle School and High School Youth Minister, Rob Masloski, Adoration, games, a bonfire, and good old fashioned s’mores. The evening was held outside.

Spring Launch Into Lent: Friday, February 19th, 2021 — We’ve joked a lot about all we lost in 2020, but really we do mean it when we say March and April were the “Lentiest Lent Ever”. We all experienced unforeseen challenges, limitations, and losses. It’s in those times we lean into our faith and the grace provided through the Sacraments and Jesus Christ’s Church. However, in the year of pandemic we were asked, “What do we do when we don’t have our Church to “to go”?”  In February, St. Patrick’s Youth Formation team welcome neighboring Youth Minister Pat Millea as he reflected with us on how we grew spiritually in the last year of the pandemic and how this can influence our upcoming Lent for 2021. This dynamic and uplifting talk was followed by Adoration and Praise and Worship. The event was livestreamed.
