Journey of Faith for Teens introduces teens to the Catholic faith in a way that's relevant to where they are in their own lives, using an engaging pastoral style. Based on the best-selling adult Christian initiation program from Liguori Publications, Journey of Faith for Teens addresses relevant life issues, faith topics, and questions in a catechetical approach to RCIA.
Engaged teens learn better, which is why we've combined collaborative activities with group discussions and private journaling to appeal to a variety of learners in a way that's flexible enough for you to modify to your unique needs.
The comprehensive Leader Guide gives you everything you need to walk into your RCIA class and start leading--whether you're a veteran RCIA instructor or a first-time volunteer. Additional discussion points prepare you for their responses and keep the conversation going. The contemporary wraparound design enables you to see what your participants see so you can spend more time teaching and growing in faith alongside your group.
1. The lessons in Journey of Faith for Teens, Inquiry begin with the concept of faith in the Catholic Church and continue the exploration into many topics that will be discussed further throughout the program. Some of the concepts include the Trinity, Jesus as fully human and fully divine, an introduction to the Bible, prayer life, the Mass, Church leadership, Mary, and the saints.
2. The concepts in Journey of Faith for Teens: Catechumenate include the RCIA process and rites, salvation history, lessons on each of the sacraments, Church history, dignity of life, social justice, and moral living.
3. Journey of Faith for Teens, Enlightenment guides teens through a period of self-reflection and preparation for the sacraments. Teens learn about God's mercy and forgiveness, through an introduction to the scrutinies, and are encouraged to participate in the Lenten practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Teens also participate in a group Lenten retreat, an opportunity for them to spend some quiet time with themselves and God before becoming fully initiated into the Church.
4. Journey of Faith for Teens, Mystagogy leads teens, now members of the Church, into full participation with their Church and parish communities. At Confirmation, teens are given the gift of the Holy Spirit and the mission to evangelize. These Mystagogy lessons focus on how to become witnesses for Christ, how to continue their faith formation now that they are fully initiated into the Church, and how to share the joy and enthusiasm they have for the faith with others.
