The Faith Formation Team at St. Priscilla is pleased to introduce you to the Life Teen Ministry Companion. We received the first edition during the 2009 Life Teen Training Convention and an update at the 2010 Convention. The materials available for our Life Teen and EDGE youth ministry is wonderfully amazing.
The Ministry Companion is an outstanding tool for those Core Team members already involved in Life Teen and EDGE, those contemplating involvement in youth ministry, parents and our entire parish community to reach a deeper understanding of our mission and the approach on what's required to reach out and minister to our youth.
The Ministry Companion is a wonderful tool to help those Core Team members already involved in Life Teen and Edge Youth Ministry, those contemplating involvement in this ministry, parents and our parish at large reach a deeper understanding of our mission and the approach on what's required to reach out and minister to our youth.
As you may know, St. Priscilla began its Life Teen journey in the fall of 2006. Life Teen has been a blessing to our parish and the high school youth we serve. We excitedly launched our inaugural year EDGE beginning October 2009. The EDGE ministers to our middle school youth using the same model as our Life Teen program.
This Ministry Companion is packed with relevant information providing an overview of both Life Teen and EDGE Programs, core values, Eucharist, liturgy and music, catechesis, outreach, training and so much more. It's a fabulous tool that can be referenced over and over during discernment and ministry. Although we have retrofitted some of the content to make it most relevant to our needs at Saint Priscilla, 100% of the 'meat and potatoes' of the original text are left intact.
In addition, Life Teen offers additional online resources for adult leaders in youth ministry. This content includes: planning materials, video trainings, blogs, events, and conferences.
Got a question? Want to chat about a topic? Need help discerning your role in youth ministry? The Faith Formation Staff is available to help Just let us know what you need. We welcome your thoughts, feedback and, especially, your prayers. Please feel free to contact us anytime.
So, grab your favorite beverage, get comfortable, say a prayer, and dive in. The "Dear Friends of Catholic Youth Ministry" letter from Randy Raus, Life Teen President is a wonderful place to begin. Enjoy!
