Sunday Life Teen Evangelization and Confirmation
What is Life Teen:
“What is needed today is a church, which knows how to respond to the expectations of young people. Jesus wants to have dialogue with them and, through his body, which is the church, to propose the possibility of a choice, which will require a commitment of their lives. As Jesus with the disciples of Emmaus, so the church must become the traveling companion of young people…”
Evangelization and Catechesis are two primary tasks of the Church and of a successful youth ministry program. Life Teen seeks to accompany teens in a real relationship with Christ and build the foundation for lifelong discipleship. Life Teen is comprehensive connecting them to the life of the entire parish and infusing the surrounding community with the light of Christ. We are called to, “go forth and love and serve the Lord and one another.”
Life Teen at Holy Cross is accompanying teens closer to Christ by reaching teens, restoring parishes, and reclaiming culture and you are invited to be part of this movement today
