Dear Friends in Ministry,
Leading Teens Closer to Christ – this is what Life Teen is about. We support and resource Catholic parishes implementing comprehensive youth ministry where the gifts of young people are not only seen as the future of the Church but as a vital part of your parish today!
It is our hope that Edge and Life Teen are more than just resources or programs – we are attempting to be a movement of the Holy Spirit. At the heart of Edge and Life Teen we continue to be called through the intercession of our Blessed Mother Mary to stress the importance of a Catholic youth ministry that reaches young people through the Eucharist, relational ministry, equipping youth leaders through training and solid catechetical materials that foster strong evangelization and catechesis, and an encounter with Christ.
We have sent renewal invoices to all current Edge and Life Teen parishes. Edge and Life Teen resources are full of relevant and practical ideas and catechetical and liturgical resources to help youth ministry efforts in your parish. Over the last four years, we have maintained a consistent cost for each subscription level. Due to heightened production and shipping costs over the last few years, we have found it necessary to raise the prices of the subscriptions this year. We understand the constant struggle of parish youth ministry, especially in the area of budgets, so we try to keep the cost as low as possible. The following is the new pricing structure for the 2012/2013 subscription year:
- Basic Life Support ($300/year) – 3 partial shipments (September, January, May) including Liturgy Planning Guide, Curriculum Guide and Spotlight. No online access to resources.
- Standard Life Support ($800/year) – 3 full Life Support shipments (September, January, May) as well as online access to our full archive of Life Support resources.
- Standard Edge Support ($500/year) – 3 full Edge Support shipments (August, November, March) as well as online access to our full archive of Edge Support resources.
- Combo Life & Edge Support ($1200/year) – 3 full Life Support shipments, 3 full Edge Support shipments, and online access to all resources. A $100 savings.
- Premium Life & Edge Support ($1600/year) – Full Life Support and Edge Support subscription, online access to all resources, as well as one free training conference registration and $100 credit towards purchases in our online store.
In order to maintain your subscription with no interruption, including online access to the resources on CatholicYouthMinistry.com, please review the renewal invoice and parish information sheet and return them along with payment (check should be made out to Life Teen) to our Mesa, AZ office by mail or fax no later than July 13, 2012. If you have any questions about the subscription renewal, please contact Pam Zimmerman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-809-3902 x119.

We look forward to partnering with you throughout the year. Please let us know if we can help – we are committed to helping you to lead teens closer to Christ!
