Catholic youth yearn for a real relationship with Christ and to be exposed to the depth of His Catholic Church. But, youth ministers across the nation leave ministry burnt out and broken because of a lack of formation and support. Often, small parishes are unable to budget for a dynamic formation program in their church and because of this there is a fast turn-over rate in youth ministers. In today’s common model of one minister per parish, churches lose out on the many talents and experiences that could be achieved by a team of formation leaders, who could collaborate to provide a more enhanced ministry experience.While many parishes struggle to hire one youth minister, Ablaze makes it possible for every parish over 500 families to afford a team of trained youth ministers forging their youth for Christ.
The mission of Ablaze Ministries is to implement the U.S. Bishops’ vision of comprehensive youth ministry, by engaging, nurturing, and empowering discipleship in young people, ministers and volunteers, as well as within families.
