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.

As we face times of uncertainty, we know that connection to the Eucharistic liturgy is critical. A close second is community. We recognize that there are circumstances where a parish may have chosen to or be required to suspend any ministry outside of the Mass. It is always a gift and blessing to receive the Eucharist and attend Mass. Where there are opportunities for additional worship and ministry, we should seek to take advantage of those opportunities.
This resource provides three session outlines for worship and community that link up to a Sunday liturgy. By attaching this additional ministry to a Sunday Mass, it allows a community to gather where they may not be able to gather otherwise and to do so in the larger flow of a Sunday experience.
This is a great option for parishes that have suspended ministry outside of the Mass, but can be utilized by any parish in any circumstance. Gathering your community for an XLT following the Mass or holding a penance service prior to Mass are great ways to elevate the “Sunday experience” of your parishioners and draw people of all ages together.
In that way, this is not a “COVID19 pandemic” resource, though it has immediate application in that context but another tool you can utilize in your ministry to help reach teenagers, families, and your parish community.
