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.

Life Teen strengthens our teens' Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church.
This is what every teenager hears the moment they step onto the grounds at a Life Teen Summer Camp. Though we’ve been saying it for years, we simply aren’t just saying it. From your dining room table to the altar at your home parish, we understand the importance of teenagers having a sense of home — a place of belonging and peace and safety. Whether you’re raising a family or building a parish community, we know how much effort you put into creating a physical, emotional, and spiritual place that others can call “home.” Our goal is simple: to be a continuation of that effort — to extend your home’s reach into a teenager’s summer camp experience. We may not know what a teenager’s life is like when they arrive at camp but no matter their questions, doubts, or struggles they may be working through, they are always welcome. This is their home, away from home.
Quarantines and lockdowns, online learning and zoom calls … 2020 has been a challenge to say the least. For so many huddled at home, brightened screens flash and flicker before our teens’ eyes throughout the day — every day. At camp, your middle school and high school teens will get away from Zoom and find a new home in nature. Fresh mountain air, open fields, lakes, ponds, and summer night skies filled with stars will remind them of all this world has to offer. Creation will point them back to the Creator as they break free from technology and quarantines and experience the freedom and beauty of nature.
