Curriculum Guide: Vocations Semester
This is the final book in an eight-semester series. This semester is on the universal call to holiness and the specific vocations of priesthood, marriage and single life. The goal of the semester is to help the teens understand how following God’s plan is our path to true fulfillment. Based on the USCCB’s “National Doctrinal Curriculum Framework for High School,” this resource gives 8 educational Life Nights that can be used in building an engaging and educational semester for your teens. These nights are meant to be adapted to meet the needs of your teens, but work as a great starting point for your planning.

The Catholic Priest Today DVD
This documentary was produced by Midwest Theological Forum as a compliment to the Fishers of Men film. It is about priests living the great adventure of a life completely dedicated to Christ and His Church. This DVD is a great addition to the vocations semester and a great way to celebrate the Year For Priests.
Meaning of Vocation by Pope John Paul II
This book is a collection of excerpts from Pope John Paul II’s talks regarding the meaning of vocation and how each person ought to respond to God’s calling. The Pope’s words are a sure way of discovering just what God wants from us.
Rocking the Catholic Cradle by Mary Moore
After the release of our Parent Life resource last spring, we knew that we needed to provide parents and youth ministers with more Catholic parenting resources. This new book is an honest, humorous and heartfelt look at the joys and challenges of Catholic parenting today.
Matt Maher “Alive Again” CD
Wait no longer! Life Teen contributing artist, Matt Maher, has just released his newest album and we are proud to celebrate what God is doing in Matt and through his music. This powerful album is filled with songs that lead the listener into deeper worship.
“Glory Revealed II” CD
Like the first, “Glory Revealed,” the new album became a labor of love that attracted many of the top names in Christian music. “What’s great about the ‘Glory Revealed’ record is that the songs originate with scripture. There’s something amazing about singing God’s word back to Him in worship.”
