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.

"The Blood Of Martyrs

...is the seed of Christianity"

This is a fabulous story.

Did you know that the North American Martyrs died in the same village that Bl. Kateri Tekawitha would later be born in-and become a Christian? (Died, heh. Wait til you read about how they died. They totally earned the title "Martyrs"!! )

Today is the feast of the North American Martyrs, but since Bl Kateri's day is in July and her story is so directly related to the Martyrs, it's a good idea to bring her up today.

I was at the first annual youth conference for our diocese at the shrine http://www.martyrshrine.org/ this past summer. Really good stuff. The grounds are beautiful and inspiring. Looking forward to next summer.
