exercise My Health Goals For 2015

I suspect that most youth workers have even crazier schedules than I do. Most have day jobs, late nights, lots of pizza. Add family, and time gets even more scarce. And as you pursue the many urgent tasks before you, oftentimes health gets placed on the backburner. For me, last year was a very good year in many ways. I wrote a book! I wrote many new songs. I spoke at... Read More

An Update About My Book

It’s been a couple of weeks since I last shared my status for the book 24 Unique Ways to Upgrade Your Catholic Youth Group. When I had completed my first run of the book, I decided to offer it for free, for a limited time. I had also traveled to NCCYM to share with youth ministers there about the free book. After all this, I decided to make an audio version of the book.... Read More

yam Building A Thriving Young Adult Ministry

A few days ago, I encountered a brilliant writeup of a successful Young Adult Group at St. Veronica’s Catholic Church, just outside of Washington D.C. Read about that here. The Elements of A Successful Apostolate The article takes the pains to list the four elements as to what makes their outreach so successful. They are: Consistency: [We have] weekly meetings and social... Read More

14159712431_d471edfe4b_o How to Guide a Teen Leadership Retreat

This question was asked on Reddit: We created a TeenCore and want to have a leadership retreat for them to get the ball rolling. I’ve already spent a ridiculous amount of time trolling Google’s results, and going through my personal trove of things, but wanted to ask about leadership and even other not leadership activities, workshops, games, etc. that some of... Read More

ragamuffin The Best (and Worst) Stuff of 2014

In the past, I would craft a best list of my favorite movies of the year. But since my movie-going habits have not kept up to pace with others, I have opted for a different approach this year. Instead of sharing my top 10 movies of the year (of which very few would grace it), I decided to share my favorites in tons of different venues. Enjoy. Movies BEST MOVIE FOR ADULTS Grand... Read More

2014YIR 2014 – Year In Review

2014 was a very important year for me, thanks to you. In it I made some very important strides. While there were some personal trade-offs, I can sense that I have laid a foundation from which my ministry can blossom, and many of you would be helped by what I can offer. Redefinition of Mission At the end of 2013, I had asked my tribe to fill out a survey as to what their needs... Read More

ChristmasMass How Parishes Can Deliver Christmas Bonuses

Christmas is coming! We all know that on Christmas Eve and/or Christmas Day there is a huge resurgence of participation amongst Catholics going to mass. Those who do not go to mass over the course of the year always still seem to find time to go to church on one of these two days. Recently, I had been distracted by an original idea. At root of this idea was the question: Is... Read More

xmas2 Watching “A Christmas Carol” with Pope Francis

An Annual Tradition A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is a perennial tradition in our culture. According to IMDB.com, since the dawn of film, this story has been retold over 100 times, not only in feature films, but teleplays, special sitcom episodes, sketches, and cartoons. Local theatrical productions put on a version of this story on an annual basis. Furthermore, the... Read More

xmas2 10 Best Christmas Films on TCM

The Greatness of Classic Movies There is no question that I am a big fan of classic movies; I even wrote a chapter about such in my book to reaching youth. The thing is, movies are a wonderful vehicle for immersing one into a story that can challenge, enlighten, and bring positive entertainment. Being the Christmas season, I would think that this represents the very best opportunity... Read More

judge My Verdict: Judging Is Underrated

It’s amazing to me the unfair flak judging is given. On the one hand, ever since the unofficial, off-the-cuff comments of Pope Francis had been ripped from their original context and trumpeted over the world as Catholicism’s new mantra, those who wish to see the Catholic Church downplay its moral authority have been working hard to remind us that to point out that... Read More
