Welcome to St. Andre Bessette’s Youth Page!


“But who do you say that I am?”


For all students in Grades 6, 7 & 8, IGNITE Youth Group meets every Friday night, from 7pm to 9 pm, in St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic School gym, located at 131 Ravineview Drive, Maple (nearest intersection is Keele & Teston) beginning Friday, September 28th.

IGNITE nights incorporate fun and social time for our youth with the much-needed catechesis, scripture study, and discussion on moral issues that touch the lives of today’s young people. Led by our team of vibrant leaders, young adults committed to living lives centered on Christ and the Gospel, the youth come to know themselves, one another and the Lord in a deeper and meaningful way. Youth Group is a place to lay foundations in faith and friendship.  Join us as we explore this year’s theme, inspired by the gospel of Matthew: “But who do you say that I am?” (Mt 16:15). Who is Jesus to you? Who are you in His eyes? Come and discover the truth of your identity in Christ.
