Judo Night at Newman University

Join Ignite for a Fall outing to Newman University for Judo class! Brothers Mark and Greg Gideon attend local parishes and teach Judo at Newman University. They will be hosting a private class just for us! Judo is a safe and fascinating self-defense art that focuses on movement and techniques which primarily require balance rather than strength. It will be a fun and informative night for those of all skill levels!

Ignite will carpool from STA at 6:30 pm on October 10th for class at Newman from 7:00-8:30 pm. Students will need to sign up by turning in the permission form available on this page to Laura Gouvion. Parents are needed to help chaperone/carpool. Please indicate if you can help on your child(ren)'s permission form. Space for the class is limited so sign up today!


“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

Ignite is open to all parishioners in grades 7 and 8.
