Summers can be overwhelming for youth ministers – with so many different events offered that bless the teenage soul, how does a leader discern which opportunities are the best “fit” for the teens in their specific youth group? The good news is that Life Teen has a little something for every teen and every parish.
We’ve crafted an entire weekend with the sole focus of helping you start solid youth ministry in your parish. Bring your priest, music minister, new staff or Core Members, and anyone else who is a key player in your ministry! You're guaranteed to walk away from this training plugged in to a vast network of support, knowing that you're not in this alone.

This is your one stop shop for great Catholic books, community, gifts, events, music, and resources. We are here to serve.

The past year of my life has been an adventure. I have been in more places the last twelve months than I had been in the first twelve years of my life. I have road tripped all the way up and down the east coast, flown west for the summer, […]

I hate sharing. I hate being open. I hate talking about my feelings. I hate being vulnerable. Today, at daily Mass, Christ showed me something. As I sat in the church for a few moments before Mass started, the priest came out to prepare everything. When he opened the tabernacle […]

It has been a while since my last blog, so, I will take some time and catch you up on my life. I’m still in Arizona. It is very hot and dry here and we have been battling lots of wild fires. Please pray for rain. Over the past few […]

One year ago I met my friend Kris while on mission with Life Teen in Mesa, Arizona. The youth minister at a parish we served with called us to come meet Kris and told us a little of his story. Kris was 19 years old and not Catholic, but had been invited to Life Teen events by a friend and kept coming back for a while now. She told us that we weren’t to meet Kris at the parish, but in a local hospital where he had already been for several weeks.
