Join us on Sundays from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm!

“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”

St. Catherine of Siena

IGNITE High School Ministry connects the teens of St. Catherine of Siena parish, allowing them to grow in their Catholic faith and in relationship with one another. We gather throughout the school year on Sundays beginning with the 6:00 pm Mass, and meeting in Room 2 afterwards. Come hang out with us, make new friends, enjoy great food, and grow closer to Christ!

For information, please contact Matthew Gabriel or call (727) 531-7721 ext. 122

Safe Environment Policy
We want our teens to experience healthy relationships in the image of God as they participate in our Youth Ministry. All staff and volunteers who have access to children are expected to complete a Safe Environment training and complete a Level II background check.

Meal Train | Media

We need your help! Our (hungry!) high school teens are in need of meals during their youth ministry gatherings on Sunday evenings. Choose a date, prepare your favorite dish (enough for about 28 people), and bring it to Annunciation Hall around 6:30 pm for our teens to enjoy! More information can be found online at


Is there a charge for teens to join IGNITE youth ministry?

There is absolutely zero charge to attend or be a part of our High School Youth Ministry, just a simple registration form so we can stay in touch! Please click the link below:

I want to get involved, but what can I do?

Don’t worry, you don’t need a degree in Theology to help! There are so many opportunities for parents, grandparents, caregivers, etc, to be involved. Core members are essential as they run the meetings, play games, lead talks, and engage the teens. Parents and families are welcome to volunteer for events (mainly fundraisers). If you cannot volunteer your time, there are still ways to get involved and support our Ministry! Donations to Ignite Youth Ministry are always appreciated as they provide for retreats, summer camps, Bibles and journals for teens, and many other goals. Lastly, and certainly not least, all prayers you can offer for the success of the ministry, and for the teens, are crucial and support us immensely!


Please help us lighten the financial burden for our teen confirmandi, so we can provide them with a deeper spiritual experience during retreat this year! The retreat will be held at the Bethany Center on Dec. 3rd.
Cost per teen: $80

Please pray for our teens!
