Service

The service component of our youth ministry program is founded on the bishops' teaching as outlined in Renewing the Vision

The ministry of justice and service with adolescents has several distinct features that give direction to programming and action. Specifically, justice and service with adolescents:

  • engages young people in discovering the call to justice and service in the Scriptures, in the life of Jesus, and in Catholic social teaching;
  • involves adolescents, their families, and parish communities in actions of direct service to those in need and in efforts to address the causes of injustice and inequity;
  • incorporates doing the right thing with attention to why and how we do what we do;
  • involves a supportive community that builds a sense of togetherness, nurtures a life of justice and service, works together to serve and act for justice, and provides support and affirmation; 
  • nurtures a lifelong commitment to service and justice involvement. This includes providing opportunities, support, and follow-up to help the young people reflect on their experience.

Food Fast

Food Fast is Catholic Relief Services (CRS) 24-hour hunger awareness retreat for Catholic youth. Focusing on global poverty and hunger, Food Fast offers a journey of solidarity with our brothers and sisters overseas, as a way of living out our Catholic faith.

Grounded in Catholic social teaching, Food Fast teaches youth about issues faced by their peers in the developing world; encourages youth to take action on behalf of the poor and hungry; and invites youth to share their perspectives and knowledge about our world with their community to create lasting change in our world.

Catholic Relief Services provides free retreat materials for your church or ministry to plan your own Food Fast. You can obtain these materials by visiting www.foodfast.org or by contacting CRS at 1-866-608-5978 or foodfast@crs.org.
