LIFE TEEN is a high school youth ministry program designed to bring teens closer to Christ and his church. While other youth ministry approaches may occasionally reference the Eucharist, for LIFE TEEN, the Mass is the focus. That's because the Eucharist, according to Vatican Council II, is the "source and summit of the Christian life."
When Mother Theresa of Calcutta was asked about what to do for our young people, she said "Bring them to the Eucharist." The Eucharist is everything. The Eucharist is about transformation and renewal. The Eucharist is Jesus.
We may be giving our teens some formation and enrichment; we may be giving them a drink. What they really need is so much more; they need the source. They need Niagara Falls. They need Jesus in the Eucharist. LIFE TEEN does that.
