A12 – Inspiring Catholic Youth Through Mass, Service and Action
Presenters: Vincent Quaranta, Angela Quaranta (Niagara)
Description: Inspiring youth in a Catholic School setting can be challenging. The thought of being spiritual sometimes is perceived as taboo and the stigma around being a faithful young person is conflicting. The aim of this presentation is to provide teachers resources, strategies and methods to rekindle the desire in youth to be spiritual and to connect with God through these challenging maturing years. Rediscovering the rich history and symbolism of Mass, this workshop will explore various methods of engaging youth in their spirituality by providing a framework for the school year which focuses around a series of Faith-based activities and events to promote a continuity of faith development for our students.
