What is Life Teen Missions?

Life Teen Missions is answering the call from Christ’s final command in Matthew 28:19, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” through our specific ministry to teens. We invest in the lives of the youth around us by going out to them, inviting them into a relationship and teaching them what it means to follow Christ. Learn more

What is NET – National Evangelization Teams?

NET Ministries challenges young Catholics to love Christ and embrace the life of the Church. Every August, 175 young Catholics aged 18-28 leave behind their jobs, school, family, and friends to devote nine months to serving with the National Evangelization Teams (NET). Divided into 16 teams, they travel across the U.S. for nine months to share the Gospel with young people and their families. Learn more

       



Prayer to Know My Vocation
My Lord and my God, You are love itself, the Source of all love and goodness. Out of love You created me to know You, to love You, and to serve You in a unique way as no one else can. I believe that You have a plan for my life, that You have a mission in your Kingdom reserved for me alone. Your plan and  your mission are far better than any other I might choose: they will glorify You, fulfill the desires of my heart, and bring salvation to those souls who are depending on my generous response.
Lord, grant me the light of grace I need to see the next step in your plan; grant me the generosity necessary to follow your call; and grant me the courage required to take up my cross and follow you.
Show me your will, O gentle and eternal God, and help me to say with Mary, “I am the servant of the Lord; let it be done to me according to your word.” Let me say with Jesus, “Let not my will be done, but Yours.”
Amen
