Senior Life Teen Catechists
The Life Teen Programme
“Life Teen” is a catechetical programme for high school students. It originated in America 30 years ago. It defines itself as a movement within the Roman Catholic Church that leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. It strengthens our teens' Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church. The programme provides an exciting, non-classroom, youth ministry model that catechizes while it energizes the teens. The programme is run by an adult Core Team of catechists who unite to evangelize, catechize, and develop Christ-centred relationships with the teens in a large group environment.
