  8. If you are sitting at the end of a pew, please take the stack of “Ignite Small Groups” cards and pass them down your pew right now. Pass the pencils down, too!  Fill out a card while I am talking and then put it in the baskets at the doors as you leave. I'll be in the gather space to meet you after Mass.
  9. The college experience is a lot of work and stress.  There seems to be something required of you all the time and it is often a bunch of heavy lifting, but there are joys, too!  The joys are found in friendship and commiseration, a common vision and a shared Faith. The good days are better when they are shared with good people and the bad days aren’t so bad when you’re not the only one suffering.  Ignite is a community of small groups who are becoming friends on this long race that we call the college experience. These friends share many things, but at the core of it all, they desire to welcome Christ into the midst of their lives through the Scripture and good conversation.  If this sounds like something you’d like to join or lead, put your name and contact information on that piece of paper and we will contact you very soon.
