“As a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church, Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church.”

Terre Haute Youth Ministry has partnered with Life Teen to bring dynamic, effective and exciting curriculum to our teens. It is a comprehensive religious education curriculum, but that is not where it stops! Life Teen is also a leader in creating engaging liturgies, retreats and even a confirmation program. The leaders at Life Teen work tirelessly to make sure that the teens are the first thought that goes into developing their programs. It is by far one of the most popular, and most effective programs for Catholic youth ministry today. Check out the link below to their website. The link to the current calendar for this semester can also be found below.
For our Confirmation preparation we have decided to use Decision Point from Dynamic Catholic. Dynamic Catholic is led by legendary author and speaker Matthew Kelly. Decision Point is a DVD and workbook based series. Matthew Kelly has a very engaging, dynamic and challenging speaking style which young and old alike can connect to. As a youth ministry, we use this program but are always finding ways to adapt the lessons to fit our teens and our ministry. But at the core, Decision Point is a solid Confirmation program! Check out the link to their website found below.
This is an opportunity for already confirmed students to take a leadership role with their faith. A member of this team will help to facilitate small groups during either Life Nights or within the Confirmation prep class. Students may be asked to give a personal witness or give a short presentation on a topic in front of the large group. To be a part of the peer ministry team is a great honor and should be taken seriously, as you are considered a leader in many ways.
We meet every Tuesday at Java Haute at 7am to hang out before school.
