We are a Catholic based youth ministry program serving the community of St. Joan of Arc Parish in San Ramon.  The LIGHT program accepts youth throughout the year. Registration forms should be completed and returned as soon as possible.

LIGHT Nights

LIGHT Nights are almost EVERY MONDAY during the school year! We invite teens to come to LIGHT every Monday from 6:50-8:30 PM in the multi-purpose room. We start in a large group, and break out into small groups providing a consistent experience of friendship, fun and faith for our high school youth.


Get involved! Ask us about our Student Action Leadership Team.

In order that each candidate for Confirmation has a foundation of faith experiences within the Christian community, we ask that candidates take time to complete the above prerequisites within youth ministry before entering into the Confirmation Program their junior or senior year of high school. You must be approved to enter the Confirmation Program and the fee for the Confirmation program includes enrollment in LIGHT.

Whether or not you choose to use a saint’s name at your confirmation, you must still explore the life of a saint and share what you learn with your group.  To help you with this research project, please complete the “Session 1 – Confirmation Saint research 2018” form.  Also provided is confirmation calendar for candidates.
