As a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church, Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church. Through powerful Eucharistic encounters and engaging catechesis, our Edge (11-14yrs) and Lifeteen (14-18yrs) young people are immersed in a dynamically Catholic parish culture. With the parish as their true home, our teens are then further strengthened by our Summer Camps, Events, Resources and Digital Evangelisation. Our goal is not only to equip parishes worldwide with timely, high quality resources to train Catechists and "reach” today’s teens, but also to create an environment where Catholic teenagers feel supported and engaged the other 167 hours a week, outside of Sunday mass.
Several parishes within the Archdiocese of Birmingham have subscribed to the Lifeteen Resources and are successfully running Lifeteen and Edge groups for young people. BCYS are here to support the recruit and training of your core team which is an essential element of setting up a lifeteen group. Through the formation of youth ministers who are on fire for their faith, this zeal for their faith overflows into their ministry. Core teams are made up of volunteers in parishes who wish to see the lives of young people transformed by Jesus. We hope to see a generation of young people emerging who are engaged with their faith, living this faith in their every day lives and discerning God's call for them as disciples. Lifeteen can be a great way to support this mission and alongside passionate volunteers, BCYS are excited about developing more Lifeteen Parishes across our Archdiocese.
