Faith On Fire

Faith on Fire is a teen driven program for high school juniors and seniors that meets once a month on Sunday nights from 7:00-8:15pm and Sunday mornings 10-11am between 9:00 and 11:00 Masses. This group provides peer support, community, continuing faith formation, and socialization.  Topics discussed each year are chosen by the teens and considered in multiple discussions, presentations, and activities.

Why come? It’s a great way to stay connected at Holy Family and continue to grow in your Catholic faith after Confirmation. This is an accepting place where you can share your ideas and feelings. The last two years of high school bring new experiences and challenges. Our faith can be a powerful tool in facing these and this group can provide a wonderful community to support that.

Sunday night schedule and possible topics will be selected and prioritized by teens at our first meeting. 7PM to 8:15PM – Holy Family Teen Center
