What is Life Teen?

Life Teen is an international Catholic movement that serves the Church by providing resources and faith experiences that help lead teens closer to Christ. This is accomplished through a vibrant Eucharistic spirituality and by creating opportunities for teens to grow in their faith. There are two main components to Life Teen. The first is the Mass and the second is the youth group meetings. Through the Mass and Life Nights (youth group meetings), high school teens learn more about their Catholic faith and grow to love the Sacraments, the Word, and the Mass. At a Life Teen parish, the priests, youth minister (and CORE Team of adults), and music ministry build an environment where teens feel loved, accepted, and compelled.
