NETWORK: Prayer and Worship: Gathered and Nurtured in Christ
Thursday March 30, 2023
7 pm – 9 pm Eastern or 7 pm – 9 pm Mountain
Through Liturgy, Prayer and Worship, we not only teach about the great traditions of the Church, but we enable young people to encounter Jesus through the Eucharist, the Word of God, and profound experiences of prayer and mystery.
Liturgy, prayer and worship provide more and deeper ways for young people to encounter communion both with God and their neighbors. They also provide space for beauty, which offers another source of encounter with God. Through creative, prayerful and dynamic liturgy we assist in the spiritual growth of young people and provide them opportunities towards leadership and involvement. By enriching the experience of prayer and worship for young people in our ministry, we ignite their lived experience of prayer and Eucharist with their families and the entire community.
