Youth Contest

NEW CONTEST -- "St. Teresa of Calcutta: Lessons for Lent”

For the past 14 years, we have been inviting and encouraging use of the Catholic Herald in the classroom in Catholic schools and religious education programs in the Diocese of Madison through our Newspapers in the Classroom project. Copies of the Catholic Herald are provided free of charge to Catholic schools and religious education programs requesting them.

During Lent this year, the Catholic Herald is sponsoring a contest involving students in grades kindergarten through high school with the best entries being published in the Catholic Herald. The contest is called “St. Teresa of Calcutta: Lessons for Lent.” More information on the contest is attached.

Once a month during the school year, the Catholic Herald is continuing to publish Junior Saints, a special section introducing students to Catholics living their faith in ordinary and extraordinary ways. Students meet a new saint each month. They also learn more about Catholic rituals, events, and holy days of the liturgical year. One page of this section is devoted to what is happening with youth in the Diocese of Madison.

Thanks to all the principals, teachers, directors and coordinators of religious education, parents, and students for your cooperation and participation in the Catholic Herald contests.

We especially want to thank Margie Schels, a teacher at St. John the Baptist School in Jefferson, who has helped develop the ideas for these contests since 2003.

Please feel free to contact the Catholic Herald office by phone or e-mail if you have any questions. God bless all of you!

VERONA -- Now in its second year, the High School Ministry program at St. Christopher Parish in Verona is striving to be a community where all teens can be heard, feel like they belong, and form authentic friendships through discussions, prayer, study, and social activities.

The program is a separate entity from the parish's Confirmation program for teens, who are confirmed in the fall of their 10th grade year.

For Youth Ministry and Confirmation Coordinator Doug Ulaszek, High School Ministry is about the teens "being formed beyond Confirmation" and striving to "change the mentality" from teens being done with their faith formation following the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Social media platforms encourage young people to create and share content with their peers around the globe, which has amplified their voices and their potential to make a difference.

According to the International Telecommunication Union, an agency of the United Nations, information and communication technology has played a central role in young people's rise to prominence on a global scale.

"It has helped them to mobilize behind a common cause and to collaborate, and it has given them a voice where before they had none," the agency said in a 2013 report.
