10 WAYS TO USE YOUCAT IN YOUTH MINISTRY

WAYS TO USE YOUCAT IN YOUR CONFIRMATION PROGRAM

YOUCAT is short for Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church, which will be distributed in multiple languages on World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid, Spain. The English-language edition is available from Ignatius Press. Developed with the help of young Catholics and written for high-school age people and young adults, YOUCAT is an accessible, contemporary expression of the Catholic Faith. The appealing graphic format includes Questions-and-Answers, highly-readable commentary, summary definitions of key terms, Bible citations and inspiring and thought-provoking quotes from Saints and others in the margins. What's more, YOUCAT is keyed to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, so people can go deeper. It explains:

  • What Catholics believe and why (doctrine)
  • How Catholics celebrate the mysteries of the faith (sacraments)
  • How Catholics are to live (moral life)
  • How they should pray (prayer and spirituality)

The questions are direct and honest, even at times tough; the answers straightforward, relevant, and compelling. YOUCAT will likely become the "go-to" place for young people to learn the truth about the Catholic faith.
