Totally Catholic Youth Ministers Lounge

Are you in youth ministry and you've had it with crazed parents? Rollin' your eyes at the pastoral council? Tired of administration work? Love youth? Love the Church? Appalled at parish politics? Looking for some good games? For a creative ways to teach a lesson for Religious Ed? Just need a place to veg out and say "phew! Someone outside of the parish to talk to!"? Grab y'r Starbucks, turn the computer away from the staff's eyes, grab a seat on a donated dusty couch and let it all go.

Confirmed: Massive Amounts Yet To Be Done

There won't be a lot of blogging from me this week-the Confirmation Mass is this weekend and I have massive amounts of work to be done. Thankfully I have a good crew to work with, but there is still a great deal of details to cover.

One of which are students who have still not done their work. *sigh*. Pray for them. I wish most of all and pray more so that eventually they will have hearts for God, praising and serving him, instead of duties to be done. I pray for their families and concerns as well.

Another thing yet to be done is buy a gift for the girl I'm sponsoring. Why do kids who I barely know as me to be their sponsor? I don't get it. I'm not knockin' this girl at all, I just wonder why would they ask me when I don't think we really know each other? And for the past two years it's been fairly quiet girls...then I realize that I haven't been doing what I'm asking the other sponsors to do. Maybe next year I won't say yes. It's hard to keep up with...we'll see.

So at any rate, it will be a slow week for this posting, but not for this Youth Minister!! Pray for us! Come, Holy Spirit!!!

Because the quiet ones are the ones that we make the best impression on and the ones 20 years from now will stop us in the mall with their families and tell us how much we helped them with God and life at that age.

You should be proud you are asked to be a sponsor. Btw-I teach 9th grade CCD (Conformation I) in my parish.
