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.

The goal of this retreat is to call and equip teens for the mission of evangelization. Using the stories and characters in the book of Acts as a basis, this retreat will help teens understand that they have an important testimony to share about how God is moving in and through them.
Walker Percy, a Catholic American author, wrote, “To become aware of the possibility of a search is to be onto something. Not to be onto something is to be in despair.” Most of us are aware that we are onto something because we have hope and find ourselves desiring and asking questions about love, happiness, and purpose. But, in a culture that gives us conflicting answers, we may find ourselves lost. It is the Gospel message, which personally guides our search for truth. Join the search on this retreat!
God spoke each of us into existence and desires a personal relationship with us. We can learn to hear His voice by becoming familiar with the way He has communicated throughout salvation history and ultimately through Jesus Christ. Spoken leads teens through the Scriptures and offers unique encounters with God through prayer and the sacraments so that they live rooted in His Word.
God created the majesty of the universe with us in mind. He created us to be inquisitive explorers as we journey through life, examining ourselves and the world around us in fine detail. This fundamental instinct has sparked our interest in our world and the universe around us. As scientists learn more about the cosmos, we realize that there is infinitely more to know about God, who created it. Discovery gives teens an opportunity to assess where they are at on their faith journey, while providing a catalyst to dive deeper into the great unknown that is a relationship with Jesus.
We are all called to become saints — to follow Jesus, who is the way, the truth, and the life — but what does that look like? What are the foundations of living a holy life? What does it mean to be a saint?
Made Known is a retreat designed specifically for middle school youth that reveals what it means to be a saint. Each session lays out different foundations in the path of holiness, providing a diverse selection of saints as examples. The youth will learn the importance of loving God, seeking truth, and having courage as they follow Jesus on the path to sainthood.
Darkness and light — this imagery is continually used as a representation of the Christian life. Throughout this retreat series, Into the Dark, the youth will learn more about the darkness of sin and fear, and how Jesus not only forgives them of their sins but also has the power to cast out fear. They will have opportunities to draw closer to Jesus in the sacraments and will be empowered to go forth and share the light of Christ with others.
