The Pontifical Mission Societies are actively working on the task of helping young people to recognize the constant opportunity they have to share the Good News and support the mission of the Church – their chance to be missionaries – and also to understand how vitally needed they are for the Church’s mission to the world.
Year of Consecrated Life
Catechists, Religious Educators and Youth Ministers:
During this Year of Consecrated Life, Pope Francis, a religious himself, invites the Church to recollect the history of consecrated life, reflect on its present variety and participate in its future. To celebrate the Year of Consecrated Life in the United States and respond to Holy Father’s wishes, the Pontifical Mission Societies in the US has created resources for high school age groups, highlighting their missionary discipleship.
The materials include a Teacher’s Guide, Student Activities, a PowerPoint Presentation and suggestions for a community event.
