Charleston IGNITE Rally
We had so much fun this past weekend at the Charleston IGNITE Rally! Teens in middle school and high school got a chance to have fun hanging out, meeting new friends, finding out what Christ wants to reveal to us when we allow him to move in our lives in big ways, and celebrating Mass together. Although our originally planned speaker became unavailable at the last minute due to health concerns, we were incredibly blessed to be joined by Chris Padgett, another nationally renowned Catholic speaker. He has an amazing gift for connecting with teens through humor that gets them excited to hear what he has to say and then lead them straight to the heart of Christ. We were also blessed to be joined by Fr. Brian Crenwelge for Mass to close out our day of fun. We are grateful for our youth board teens who have come so far throughout the year in their ministry development, our parent chaperones who help make youth board possible, and all the parents and parish ministers who prioritize bringing their young people to these events. Getting to offer this conversion experience for our teens--especially those preparing for Confirmation--is such a joyful grace to the youth office!
