Life Teen

The Archdiocese for the Military Services partners with Life Teen to encourage comprehensive Catholic youth ministry in military settings.

Life Teen is an international Catholic ministry which is Eucharist-based and focuses on transforming teens, parishes, and culture. There are military installations throughout the US, Europe, and Asia that utilize Life Teen resources or participate in Life Teen events to serve military-connected Catholic high school youth, middle school youth and their parents.

Military Family Retreat Gaming, Austria – Planned to be held in 2021

The retreat theme will be “Christ Lives,” with excerpts from Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Christus Vivit. We’ll have mass, confession available, and a time of Eucharistic adoration.  In response to our survey from this past summer, we’ll have 2 separate tracks available for the adults on Saturday: Catholic apologetics (how to understand and defend challenging Church teachings) and Youth Ministry Practical Tips.

Life Teen Inspiration Various Amusement Parks, Fall 2021

Inspiration has one goal in mind: to provide you an opportunity to hang out, have fun, and walk with your teens. The casual and inviting theme park atmosphere paired with a powerful Gospel-centered event sets the stage for teenagers to encounter Jesus in a powerful way. From the dedicated young disciple to the questioning and hesitant Confirmation teen, Inspiration is the perfect place for youth ministers and Core Members to pour into quality relational ministry with their teens, no matter where they may be in their faith life.
