"Ignite was not afraid to bring our kids into a deeper experience of faith through adoration, reconciliation, Mass, Praise and Worship, and more.  I loved the high energy of Ignite and how they did all the “heavy lifting” for the retreat."

-- Linda - Coordinator of Faith Formation

“For the second year in a row, Ignite has given our adolescents at St. Raphael Catholic Church a retreat experience that they are enthused about and very present to.  The music that is used is praise and worship, well played and strong volume.  The teaching and devotions are traditional, including an hour of eucharistic adoration during the confessions.  I ask two of the young people how they were finding the retreat, and they both said that they "loved" it.  I don't remember having a retreat that I "loved" during high school.  I'm glad Ignite has developed a way to connect our young people with the God who loves them.”

—Fr. Bruce Parochial Vicar

“The best surprise about Ignite was Kevin’s emcee skills. He was patient and ingenious at drawing them out of their shells and getting them involved. He let the shy ones take their time. He calmed the overzealous. He used techniques that got everyone involved without making them uncomfortable”

-- Veronica - Youth Minister
