4/16 Life Teen Weekly Update

Hi Teens and Families!

Checking in with our Life Teen weekly update!  I hope that you all are doing well during the quarantine.  I’m hanging in there…miss my grandkids, Mass and all of you guys!  Teens and parents…I read this article from Life Teen that might help us and put some things in perspective:  https://lifeteen.com/blog/dont-waste-quarantine/.

Life Nights:  We continue to offer our virtual youth group on Zoom.  This virtual Life Night runs like a typical Life Night (well, no food and we see the speaker prior to our meeting).  We open with prayer, some music and a game.  We then move onto a group discussion on the Life Night teaching and close with music and prayer.  This Sunday, the speaker is Mark Hart from Life Teen.  The title of this evening is “Surrounded by Mercy”.  I encourage you all to set a reminder on your phone for this Sunday, 4/19 for 5pm and then another reminder for 5:45pm.  You don’t want to miss this!!!  The following are the instructions for Sunday:

    1. On Sunday, 4/19 at 5pm please click on:  LFTN.CO/LIFENIGHT.  This will take you to the Life Teen YouTube channel, where you can join several thousand teens to see and listen to the teaching for the evening.  This teaching (and other stuff) will end at 5:30pm.
    2. At 5:45pm, join our St. Oliver Life Teen ZOOM Youth Group meeting for music, game, discussion and prayer.  We will end our night at 6:45pm.  The link to our 4/19 Zoom meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82559123362?pwd=Vm84TUNubTNtNlR2MUY2TG5BR0RGQT09.

Divine Mercy Sunday:  Sunday, 4/19, our universal church celebrates Divine Mercy Sunday.  The message of The Divine Mercy is simple. It is that God loves us – all of us. And, He wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy.

The Divine Mercy message is one we can call to mind simply by remembering ABC:

A – Ask for His Mercy. God wants us to approach Him in prayer constantly, repenting of our sins and asking Him to pour His mercy out upon us and upon the whole world.

B – Be merciful. God wants us to receive His mercy and let it flow through us to others. He wants us to extend love and forgiveness to others just as He does to us.
C – Completely trust in Jesus. God wants us to know that the graces of His mercy are dependent upon our trust. The more we trust in Jesus, the more we will receive.

Here are a few other resources that can help you with participating in Divine Mercy Sunday:

You do not have to have a signed FIAT reflection form, just email me your reflection!)

Life Teen Weekly Update 4/8/20

Hello All!
Holy Week is here! I know it will be quite a different experience for us all, but the Lord is present wherever we are! You can still pick up a Holy Week packet at the entrance of the Life Teen doors. I encourage you all to do some of these family activities that are included in the packet.

Here is a reminder of the St. Oliver Plunkett Holy Week Triduum schedule: (After today’s 9am Mass, there are no Daily Masses (9am) the rest of this week.) You can find our Masses on YouTube at St. Oliver Plunkett Snellville.

Holy Thursday never has a morning Mass —- the only Mass can be in the Evening, for the Mass of the Lord’s Supper. Tomorrow, Thursday, 4/9 at 7pm and this Mass is bilingual. Lent officially ends with Evening Prayer of Holy Thursday.

Good Friday, recall, is the only day of the entire year, there is NO Mass. So nothing happens in the morning — except private prayer, reflection and ideally, minimal activity. St. Oliver’s offers: The 7 Last Words (3pm in English, 4:30pm in Spanish) and Good Friday Service (5:30pm in Spanish and at 7pm in English).

Holy Saturday also never has any morning liturgy —- only the Easter Vigil, which is set for later that evening at 7:30pm.

SO, no morning Masses on Holy Thursday, Good Friday or Holy Saturday.
YET, Easter Sunday, we celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord (and our newness of life in Him) at 9am (English) and 11am (Spanish) Easter Sunday morning.

Sabbath Sunday: This Sunday, 4/12, Life Teen will offer another Life Night experience. Here are the instructions:
a. On Sunday, 4/12 at 5pm please click on: LFTN.CO/LIFENIGHT. This will take you to the Life Teen YouTube channel, where you can join several thousand teens to see and listen to the teaching for the evening. This teaching (and other stuff) will end at 5:30pm. The scheduled speaker for this Life Night is Father Mike Schmitz! PARENTS: Attached is information from Life Teen to help you talk with your teen about the teaching. I encourage you to have a short discussion with your teen and unpack the teaching together.
b. At 5:45pm, join our St. Oliver Life Teen ZOOM Youth Group meeting for music, game, discussion and prayer. We will end our night at 6:45pm. Check your email for the link or text/email me at youthministry@stolivers.com.
c. Project YM LIVE: This is another teen resource that is available. Click on https://projectym.com/live/ at 8pm on Sunday, 4/12 and join thousands of teens for this event. Father Agustino Torres is the scheduled speaker for the evening. I hope all our teens and families view this broadcast.

Socially Distant Life Teen Game Night: We had a great 1st Life Teen game night and will be offering another game night on Wednesday 4/15 from 7pm-7:30pm. We will have new games to play and as usual lots of fun.  Check your email for the link or text/email me at youthministry@stolivers.com.

Prize Question: first teen to email me the answer (youthministry@stolivers.com) will win a Life Teen prize: What is the name of the Mass when our Pastor receives the Holy Oils for the parish from the Archbishop?

Previous Prize Winners: (prizes to be awarded when we are able to meet!)
