ifnotnow Bringing Back Fallen-Away Catholics To The Church

It is well known that the church is losing its youth and young adults in massive numbers. Many of these students leave church shortly after they “graduate” CCD (receive the Sacrament of Confirmation), and mistakenly perceive such as a finish line in their journey, and not a starting point. I think we can get them back. This post details one such strategy. It Starts Now But... Read More

There's a Little Black Spot on your head todayyyy... There’s A Little Black Spot on Your Head Today…

Wednesday starts the beginning of Lent. In honor of Ash Wednesday, I, once again, draw attention to the video and parody of This Time of Forty Days. Please consider passing this along in your own circles. Thank you! This Time of Forty Days Parody of “King of Pain” Written by Sting Peformed by The Police There’s a little black spot on your head today I guess it must mean... Read More

maheramen Matt Maher’s Because He Lives (Amen)

I like Matt Maher. He has written many incredible songs, for the service of trying to stir up today’s youth (and older) to a life of faithful discipleship and radiant joy. I saw him perform last year and he gave a great performance while also being humble about his craft. And he is a Catholic—a rarity in CCM circles. I also like Contemporary Praise music. I have followed... Read More

Saint_Patrick St Patrick’s Daily Hymn

I have been busy as of late. Shortly after I had completed uploading the book, I focused intently on a confirmation retreat I had been invited to keynote. That retreat is over (and seemed to go well, thank you God), and Lent is coming. I have since been invited to play for a healing mass that takes place on St. Patrick’s Day. In preparation of choosing songs for the... Read More

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
