Here is the latest in our weekly series offering a set of hyperlinks useful to the Catholic Youth Ministry field just In Case You Missed It. (which we did last week and we were a few hours late on our usual Thursday schedule – blame it on a busy schedule or patriotic pre-gaming – whichever!) Please pass these along in your e-newsletters (and offer Project YM a little love in the process, please.)
- Recently Focus executive director Curtis Martin addressed the US Bishops. He insisted that “Now is the best time in the Church’s history to raise young people up in not only knowledge of the Church, but also in sharing her treasure: the treasure that is Christ.” Video is available at the link.
- Atlantic Magazine offers a reminder that youth can be agents of peace.
- The Year of Mercy is coming soon. Joe Paprocki has a set of resources.
- Mark Oestricher invites you to consider how you are growing in faith as a youth minister.
Seriously, below is a video I will play before parents. Enjoy a throwback “Fresh Prince” excerpt shares a similar and equally not deeply thought-through concern about the church and the future.
