Seek God's Wisdom - story of one catechist's experience of teaching prayer to teens and a journey of vocational discernment; written by Deacon Denis Mailhot, MPS

In the midst of the COVID-19 situation, with youth ministry and faith formation activites for teens suspended, Shawn Gregory offers some ideas and links to resources that may be useful during this time.

Special Video Message from Roy Petitfils to the Teens of Maine


Stay in Touch With Youth and Parents

  • Record a video weekly with words of encouragement, prayer and maybe a daily challenge
  • If you have social media accounts for your ministry, keep it updated, post often during this time.
    • Create a spiritual play list to share through Spotify Ask the youth to create and share one too.
  • Gather virtually for Lectio Divina or to break open Sunday’s Gospel together using Lifesize Cloud, Zoom Google Hangout, etc.


There are so many other resources online and finding the best fit for your community is important. We will be looking into ways to keep the faith formation community together, sharing more resources and gathering virtually. In the meantime, if you have any questions, concerns or ideas please pass them along.


 During this challenging time, let us continue to pray for health and patience.
