You can never over-communicate with your Core Team, your pastor, the parish staff, other members of the youth staff, the teens, parents, etc. We kind of laugh about youth ministers and communication, but the truth is: if we want people on our side, we have to communicate more.
What’s your status? For a generation of teens that are more connected to the world and to each other than ever before, everything hinges on knowing and being known. Through Facebook pages, smart phones, Wikipedia, blogs and YouTube videos, the world is at their fingertips. How do we make prayer, Mary and the Saints accessible to teens who value immediate feedback and instant communication?
Goal for the Life Night:
The goal of this night is to demonstrate to the teens how websites like “My Space” might begin as harmless “fun” but how they can create an unhealthy, unChristian environment and subculture that is both demeaning and demoralizing. Further, we want to equip the teens with practical insights and suggestions for how they can “put on” the eyes and heart of Christ when online and when immersed in such situations becoming a light to their peers.
