Sharing faith is part of who we are as Catholics, which includes encouraging young people in discipleship, inviting them into our church community and journeying with them as they grow. Young people are the church of today, not only the church of tomorrow.
We are all in relationship with young people in some way, and each young person is important. Young people are a part of our community and we all need to be active in ministry with them to reflect this. We are God’s work of art (cf. Eph 2:10) and this means that every human being, including our young people, needs to be given the best. The best is to help each other to develop an even deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.
