SOME 150 youth from across the Archdiocese gathered at Chisholm Catholic College last February 19 for  the first Ignite Live’s  for 2016.

The first of six gatherings for the year, the night was filled with live music from the Ignite Band, games and prayer.

Ignite Perth co-ordinator Ronan McGinniss gave a talk on the night’s theme ‘Road Trip’, which focused and coincided with the season of Lent.

The talk was followed by a drama, and the Sacrament of Reconciliation and prayer teams were available during the quiet time.

Catholic Youth Ministry staff Kim Hodgson attended the night, and explained that such events are targeted at bringing the faith to all who attend them.

“Ignite is a great initiative, providing a platform for young people to invite friends to a vibrant event that is both fun and connects young people to Jesus. Ignite set a great stage to inspire young people to live life to the full and encounter Christ,”

“Dynamic speakers, music, an opportunity for prayer and reconciliation and games are all key elements that make Ignite events attractive to both the churched and unchurched.”

The next Ignite Live will be held on Friday, April 1 at Servite College, Tuart Hill.
