Youth Ministry to Family Ministry

April 1, 2008

Uuuh, my heart is beating when I read what the Pope said. I think about a year ago I felt that the way to minister to youths is through their family as well. All this time, we simply minister “only youth”, or even worse, sometimes we take the youths from their family!

This is what the pope said to the Salesian:

Since the family should have an active role in the education of youth, it is necessary to expand youth ministry to family ministry.

btw, St. John Bosco, the founder of Salesian, is one of the patron saints for youth.

What can we do then?
