Empower Core Member Trainings are back! We want to equip youth ministers and core members with the tools and techniques that their ministry needs to not just survive, but to thrive. With a focus on team building along with practical training for the current youth ministry landscape, these trainings are designed to set you up for success.
We’ve crafted an entire weekend with the sole focus of helping you start solid youth ministry in your parish! We’ll be walking through the essential components for launching or revitalizing youth ministry. You can expect to receive a systematic, comprehensive introduction to quality youth ministry along with the practical steps to make it happen. And, because youth ministry flows to and from the sacraments, this training won't just be about the logistics of ministry, but will also provide you an opportunity to renew your own relationship with Christ.
There are many women who are a vital part of salvation history and their stories are critical parts of Sacred Scripture. This scriptural devotion will inspire young women to raise their heads along with Mary, Martha, Lydia, and Esther and look into the eyes of Jesus, the God who loves deeply and perfectly.
You are going to make thousands of decisions today and one of them might change your life. Are you confident that what you want and what God want are the same thing? Don’t leave it up to chance - leave it in the hands of the Holy Spirit.

You are desired, you are chosen, you are loved by God.

I’d like to believe that even when my praises for God feel dried up or His blessings for me feel finished, that I’ll remember the truth about who He is. I’d like to tell myself I’ll always see God’s goodness in even the most difficult of situations. But I’m human and stumble more than I’d like, failing to recognize such things.

Christ didn’t come to tell us how bad we are, He came to tell us how good we are.

But she realized that it was her littleness and child-like faith that made her precious to God, and so it was precious to her, too.

Just as sin can rewire our brain and change the way we tend to react, virtue can rewire us for greatness.

I continued to look back and forth between the TV, which was showing all of this destruction, and the window, through which I could see nothing but blue skies. It was an unsettling feeling and left me with a question you’ve probably asked a time or two: Why does God allow this to happen?
Still, it can be difficult to see why being vulnerable is a good idea. Sometimes, it seems downright foolish. But it isn’t for nothing; it’s for love.

If you had asked high school me to describe herself, I can guarantee you she would not have said disobedient.
One time someone asked me a direct question and I almost forgot to answer. Yeah, that actually happened. You see, I don’t really talk that much. It’s not that I don’t like people; I just don’t feel compelled. I’m what you might call quiet, shy, introverted, reserved…and I haven’t always […]
