It is our hope that through the various youth ministry programs and initiatives offered in the Archdiocese of Denver, your child will encounter God at a very real and personal level.
Our various retreats and conferences are designed to solicit a discipleship response in your child, to stir up a desire to live for Jesus Christ as He lived and died for us. Here is where your role as primary educator for your child comes into play.
We encourage our youth to participate in the healing Sacrament of Reconciliation and receive the opportunity to be in total union with God our Father (Catechism 1422-1490). We are also a Eucharist church and in the Eucharist we know that your child will receive strength and healing in our Lord Jesus, sacramentally present. By participating in a Archdiocese of Denver Youth Ministry event, it is our hope and prayer that your child will be blessed and enriched by these gifts from God that shower His graces down from Heaven.
As a parent, the question we have for you is: “What will you do to help your child continue to live in this state of grace?”
What a fantastic opportunity you have as a parent to foster your child into an ongoing relationship with Christ!
Hopefully, you, too, have experienced the healing power of Confession and the strengthening gift of the Eucharist in your own life. If it has been awhile, most parishes in the Archdiocese offer weekly Confession times, and priests are always willing to make appointments for this healing gift.
