“They said to each other, "Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the scriptures?" - Luke 24:32

The mission of the St Thomas Aquinas middle school youth group is to help all young people hear the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and to help them actively respond to that message through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and active participation as a member of His Church. Ignite is open to all parishioners in grades 7 and 8. 

Ignite meets twice monthly during the school year in the STA school Cafeteria from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
