The Ignite Team runs various events around the Diocese of East Anglia within both parishes and schools.  Retreats, assemblies, RE Classes and school missions can all be run for schools by the team and are designed to explore areas of the Catholic faith in a vibrant and informed way.   

In parishes the Ignite Team are able to come and run a Confirmation or First Holy Communion session.  They are also able to run a youth Mass either celebrated or concelebrated by the chaplain to the team: Fr Luke Goymour with music, testimony and post-Communion reflections being provided.

Glow Days: these are retreat days the Ignite Team can come and run in your parish and/or deanery for young people in your parish who are interested in growing in their faith.  The days is composed of dynamic talks, interactive workshops, activities, music and opportunities for prayer and reflection.  If you would like to have your parish host one of these days or would like to find out more please contact the Ignite Team Leader (Catherine Williams) for more information:
