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.

Prayer Request

Please pray for a family who is in crisis.

Actually, crisis never seems to leave this family. Dad is being sued because he shot the neighbors' dog-the dog who was frothing and hurtling towards him snapping and barking when the Dad was trying to get the dog away from his own animals and off their land-one of the sons has been accused of rape, a cousin was found in his car in a parking lot drunk out of his mind and had to have his stomach pumped. (And this is the "good" kid)

This family has struggled so much over the years. What I admire most about Mom and Dad is how FAR they have come from their previous life. They are bound and determined that their children won't make the mistakes that they did. Mom and Dad are faithful volunteers and dedicated to the work of the Church. I admire both of them so very much.

I get the feeling that Satan keeps hitting them for a reason-as if he's trying to drag them back down. Satan doesn't like it when people leave him for God. Please intercede for them-not just for their current problems but for the success of their life in Christ-who ultimately will triumph.
