MIDDLE SCHOOL YOUTH MINISTRY

St. Catherine of Siena said “When you are who you are called to be you will set the world ablaze!” Our Blaze Middle School Youth Ministry offers opportunities throughout the year for youth in Grades 6-8 to meet other middle schoolers, get involved in outreach, and have fun in a safe and spiritually enriched environment.
