We’ve compiled our best training material into one weekend. XLT, Mass, incredible general sessions, and seasoned youth ministry experts make this a training you won't soon forget. You'll be able to walk away from this training knowing you have support from others just like you in the ministry of leading teens closer to Christ!

I love our Church! I really and sincerely do. I love everything about our Church. I love the sights of the buildings and the Liturgy, the sounds of the old Gregorian Chant music, the smells of the incense, the physicality (touch) of the priesthood, the taste of the Body and […]

Can you imagine if Jesus was a rock star how many people would be lining up to see Him? I’m sure every show would be sold out with thousands of people paying just to see a little man on a stage hundreds of feet away. I was praying my rosary […]

We did it! We finally said, “YES!” After two years of discernment we have decided to sell everything we have and follow Jesus by answering His call for our family to become full-time missionaries.
This decision will effect everyone we hold dear, from our extended family, to our beloved community. A decision, we pray, that will encourage others to live out their call to be missionaries in their everyday life.
A little while ago, I wrote a blog about simplifying my life and about how the simple things in life truly matter. I talked about how I’m beginning to enjoy and appreciate the little things in life. But I’m starting to think of other little things, and just how much […]

I have been a Eucharistic Minister before, but coming into a new diocese, it turns out I have to be trained within the diocese before being able to serve. And I thought, “oh, well that sucks!” And shrugged off this service I have been doing. But now, having the opportunity […]

What does it mean to say YES? This has been the question that has been encompassing my every thought. I’ve been writing the word YES on my hand everyday for the past few weeks. When I don’t want to wake up in the morning, or love someone in my community […]

To start off the new year, we had the incredible opportunity to do an eight day silent retreat. Going in, I had no idea what to expect. Eight days of silence and solitude sounded kind of miserable. But, as soon as I shut the door to the world by committing […]

I am a Missionary. I’ve committed to two years being a missionary with Life Teen Missions. For me that meant leaving my home country of Germany again and moving to the middle of nowhere, to a place called Covecrest. I am blessed to live in a Catholic community and to […]
