Youth and Young Adult Ministry
“I came that they might have life and have it more abundantly." (John 10:10)
Welcome to the Youth and Young Adult pages of the Apostleship of Prayer.
In the Gospel of John, we hear the beautiful words of Jesus, who tells us that he has come to bring us life. And not just life, but abundant life—life to the fullest! What joyful news! Jesus’ words are particularly relevant to young people, whose lives are beginning to unfold and who hold deep desires, hopes, and dreams for a happy and meaningful life. Jesus tells us that he is the meaning of life, and that encountering his Sacred Heart—full of love for us(!!)—will fill our lives with abundant joy, happiness, and peace. An encounter with Jesus' Heart sets our hearts on fire and inspires us to love and serve God with our entire lives.
Here at the Apostleship of Prayer, we encourage young people to encounter Jesus daily by offering themselves and their days to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. If we offer each day to Jesus, we are preparing ourselves to give our entire life to him. A life given to Jesus truly is life to the fullest!
