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.

Our goal is to provide at least one social and one service opportunity each month for our middle schoolers (Grades 6-8), whether attending a Catholic or non-Catholic school. Be sure to check the weekly bulletin and this website regularly for the most up to date information.  Click below for the calendar of planned events.
Friday, Nov. 1, 8:00-9:30 PM Youth Room
Our monthly THANK GOD IT’S YOUTH FRIDAY is held on the first Friday of the month. Come and have come fun with fellow middle schoolers from your parish. Note the time change! Due to Nov. 1 being a holy day of obligation for All Saints Day, we will meet after the 7 PM Mass. Hope to see all our saints in training there!
Friday, Nov. 8, 4:00-8:00 PM
Help provide and serve dinner to approximately 80 guests at RMcDH. Space is limited to 8 participants. The group will depart St. Joseph’s at 4 PM. We ask participants to donate $20 to cover the cost of the food. You will also need to bring a signed permission form. For more info, sign up, and download a permission form, click below:
