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.

Virtual Youth Ministry

Now here is something that is quite interesting.

The Sion Community in London, England do a "Virtual Vigil" It is an online presence for several days in a row. You can chat live, get prayers, do evening prayer, be part of an interactive drama, talk in their forums...they have a whole bunch of stuff going on.

Make sure to visit them in the next few days. The Virtual Vigil has them live for about 5 days. I'm guessing because of the cost and energy they can't maintain that sort of presence every day, but it's an outreach using the medium of the internet.

The Sion Community is a group who do evangelization. They have a community and do various kinds of evangelization, one of which is youth ministry. Go check out the Sion Community website as well.

Go say hello and introduce yourselves. Or send your kids over there. It's what they are there for!

No, I'm Alice's roomate, though. She's the one that showed me your site the other day. I popped on to the chat room, which is totally awesome, btw.

Welcome!! And thanks for the great and amazing work that you guys do. Alice tells me of how God is working over there and we praise God for your commitment to the youth.
