Pray Every Day - Join the Our Lady's ARMI
This series on prayer, Youth Walking with God ©2009, is intended for presentation to middle- and/or highschool youth as part of a pre-confirmation religious education program or post-confirmation continuing faith formation. The workshop consists of a series of sessions that can be offered as a weekend retreat or as part of a seasonal or classroom program. Each session draws the youth into a different perspective on relating to God in a personal and intimate way which deepens their faith and their understanding of God. The series integrates Contemporary Christian music selected to match each topic and integrates a variety of group and independent activities that support the topic of each session.
