Rise & Ignite Youth Groups


Welcome to Rise & Ignite’s page!

Rise is Our Lady of Grace’s youth group for middle schoolers (grades 6-8), and Ignite is our youth group for high schoolers (grades 9-12). Rise seeks to teach and inspire young people to rise up and walk in the light of faith, while Ignite seeks to ignite an indistinguishable fire of faith in their hearts – so that young people of all ages may confidently live as disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, under the protection and guidance of our Blessed Mother. We want Rise and Ignite to allow pre-teens and teens to grow in healthy community with their neighbor, while they also grow in their personal relationship with Christ.

Both Rise and Ignite have weekly meetings that include games, free snacks, faith talks, and time to hang out with fellow Catholic teens. We offer other events throughout the year as well, including trips where we’ll get off campus and enjoy different things that Bucks County has to offer, as well as some opportunities to volunteer and help our brothers and sisters in need. Ignite also attends the Steubenville Catholic Youth Conference in Steubenville, Ohio each summer.

Join us for our next meeting! Any and all teens are welcome, whether you are a parishioner of OLG or not! 🙂 Just stop on by. Details can be found below.

RISE (grades 6-8): Sundays from 4:30-5:45 PM – St. John Neumann Room, OLG School.

IGNITE (grades 9-12): Sundays from 6-7:30 PM – St. John Neumann Room, OLG School.

“See what love the Father has bestowed on us, that we may be called children of God.” -1 John 3:1
IGNITE is going on a trip to a Steubenville Catholic Youth Conference this summer!! This weekend-long retreat (June 28th-30th, 2019) is for teens who have just graduated from 8th grade through teens who have just graduated from 12th grade by the end of the current school year. It’s held at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Steubenville, Ohio, and it is an INCREDIBLE experience for all who attend. The conference includes a weekend full of concerts, talks, Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, optional Confession, and so much more.
***We are so grateful and excited to announce that thanks to the incredible generosity of our parishioners, we have reached our fundraising goal for this trip! Thank you to all who donated and helped along the way. Know that you and your intentions are in our prayers, especially as we experience this amazing retreat! God bless you!
