Seasonal Prayer Services for Teenagers by Greg Dues



Seasonal Prayers for Teenagers supplies a variety of paraliturgies that young people will find lively, thoughtful, and deeply involving. In Autumn, teens will celebrate the transition from summertime to school time. At Halloween, they deal with the dysfunctional "masks" that they and peers wear. Later in the fall the teens will celebrate the mystery of death and life. Eight other prayer services celebrate seasonal liturgical themes of a reconciliation dimension of the Advent wreath...the story of our Christmas traditions...preparing Lenten contract...moving toward new life during Lent...celebrating the Holy Week symbols of a new life...going on an Emmaus Walk...and learning to give witness to Pentecost. This book will be useful to teachers, youth ministers, catechists, pastors, parents, principals and DREs, anyone who works with your people from junior high age upwards. Each of the service features background notes, preparation instructions, a time for listening, and a response. While structured in similar ways, the services offer considerable variety in format. Yet all generate an active and enthusiastic response.
