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.

Class of 2011 Mindset-Beloit College

Every fall I look forward to this list. It gives us a big of a clue as to what incoming college freshmen are like, what their world was growing up and what they know-or don't know.

Some of things on the list blow my mind, like They've never seen Johnny Carson live. What? But others I can relate to: Jerry Springer has always been lowering the level of discourse on TV.

The one that, for whatever reason, hit me the hardest: MTV has never featured music videos.

I did a whole report, in high school, on the fall of the Berlin Wall -- and it's not even part of their frame!

They expect to see humvees on the road in civilian traffic, huh? Weird!

And they will maybe learn as a history fact what Nelson Mandela went through before he was free and a force...odd.

Yeah, I like that list too. It's got some worthwhile markers of a certain group's frame of reference.
