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:

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!)

St. Oliver’s Life Teen-STAY CONNECTED

Hello Life Teen families!

Though we are in the midst of social distancing, I want us to all stay spiritually connected!  This email will provide lots of online resources for teens, parents and families.

I would like to start with a message from our Bishop Konzen:  https://vimeo.com/398355936.  You can also keep updated with the Archdiocese at:  https://archatl.com/covid-19/

Here are some ideas that can be implemented by you all:

SABBATH SUNDAYS:    Catholics should still remember to keep the Sabbath holy even though there may be no chance to physically attend a Mass.  Set aside time on Sunday or Saturday evening to go through the readings for the day, to try and pray together as a family.

  1. To watch daily Mass:   http://www.catholictv.org/masses/catholictv-mass.  List from Archdiocese:  https://archatl.com/covid-19/broadcast-or-livestreamed-mass/   (As of this email, St. Oliver’s is working on a livestream of Mass at our parish.  Once we are up and running, I will share how to view)
  2. Spiritual Communion Prayer:  My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.  I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.  Amen.
  3. Daily Readings:  http://usccb.org/
  4. TEENS:  NO Life Night on Sunday…but I encourage you to watch ProjectYM Live: https://projectym.com/live/ck_subscriber_id=159253093&fbclid=IwAR0rejLoUq4mZ7Pqg5dGttrnEDYvVUUX40QLIHtdlgM4Kj7R_6jy5XbuNuM

This is a LIVE Weekly youth group night!  It begins on Sunday, 3/22 from 7pm-8pm.  The speaker for the night is Paul J. Kim (http://www.pjkmusic.com/)  Paul is a great speaker and music artist.  Check it out!!!

MOVIE MONDAYS: A great way for some bonding time with family or just finished your schoolwork and are bored!

Here are a few websites with lists for families to review:  (Please check the ratings of these movies and seek permission from your parents)

  1. https://www.ncregister.com/info/top_100_pro_catholic_movies
  2. https://www.stayathomemum.com.au/my-lifestyle/50-life-changing-movies-to-watch-with-teenagers/
  3. While googling a few things, I came across the following 2 titles, that had me cracking up…I watched these movies in the late 60s and I challenge you guys to watch moviemaking at its finest!!!  The Trouble With Angels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPs5TtdNZro and its sequel Where Angels Go Trouble Follows: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1u63CxLMnjk  (these links are trailers, but you could probably find the movie on Netflix or Amazon Prime!)

TALKING TUESDAYS:  How about spending some time in pray with and to God!  A really good idea is to set up a sacred space in your house or in your room!

  1. Great videos on prayer by Father Mike Schmitz:
    1. Power of Prayer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiAMzghLcMA
    2. Tips on Praying:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yk8In-6KUGc
  2. This is a good time to learn some traditional Catholic Prayers:  https://www.loyolapress.com/our-catholic-faith/prayer/traditional-catholic-prayers
  3. Take time to let God talk to you too!
  4. St. Oliver’s is having Adoration in the church from 9am-5pm EVERDAY!!

WORD ON WEDNESDAYS:  Open up your Bible…read and reflect on some great stories of all times! (synopsis taken from The Catholic Youth Bible)

  1. Old Testament:
    1. Tobit-Good people suffering, love that must overcome a frightening obstacle, an uncover angel-the Book of Tobit has it all.  Part fairy tale, part love story, this book will bring a smile to your face and perhaps a tear to your eye.
    2. Jonah-You’re watching a comedy show where someone dressed like a doctor starts making outrageous comments about a person’s health.  You laugh, not because sickness is funny, but because doctors are supposed to be sensitive and caring.  That’s’ the basis of satire-that someone or something that is supposed to act one way acts another way.  You’re about to read a biblical satire about Jonah, the prophet.  The Book of Jonah uses humor to make an important point-God is the God of all people, even those we consider our enemies.
    3. Proverbs-When we first pick up the daily newspaper (do we really do this now??), many of us turn first to the advice columns.  “My Mom just does not understand me,”  we read.  “Why won’t she let me make my own decisions ?” Or “All my friends take drugs.  How do I resist the pressure?”  The book of Proverbs is the advice column of the Old Testament.  It covers everything from raising children to choosing friends.
  2. New Testament:
    1. Ephesians:  What’s the purpose of life?  Why am I alive?  What’s the point of it all anyway?  You may have asked questions like these out of simple curiosity or during a time when life wasn’t going so well.  In either case, God has an answer for you tucked away inside the Letter to the Ephesians.  This letter talks about God’s plan to save us for a union with God and one another, both now and for eternity.
    2. Romans:  Have you wondered if you’re good enough to deserve someone’s unconditional love?  Has it ever puzzled you that sometimes it is easier to do the wrong thing than the right thing?  If you have, you are not alone.  Saint Paul felt the same way.  In his Letter to the Romans, he addresses some important questions of life and faith.  But at its core, the message of the letter is simple:  We are justified-made right with God-by faith in Jesus Christ.
  3. Lectio Live:  Join Life Teen for Lectio Live:  a digital small group for teens, where we pray through one of the upcoming Sunday Mass readings!  Wednesdays @ 6pm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AShxr7fuXgs&list=PLeYPzNQ7pEh-nVk3aoHWy6tba7-LTXepo
  4. Daily Readings & Reflections:  http://usccb.org/

THOUGHTFUL THURSDAYS:  How about a random act of kindness!

  1. Help out your parents at home
  2. Hang out with your sibling,
  3. Call a friend who you have not spoken to in a while,
  4. Write a letter of gratitude to a teacher, nurse, first responder, etc and mail it or send via email.

FASTING FRIDAYS:  Offer a special sacrifice

  1. Check out these ideas:  http://www.nicksenger.com/csc/101-practical-fasting-ideas-for-lent

SAINTLY SATURDAY:  Learn about a Saint and yes…you can become one!!!

  1. https://www.franciscanmedia.org/sod-calendar/
  2. https://www.tinysaints.com/pages/meet-a-saint-like-you

Miscellaneous:  FORMED (online religious education for all ages):

Please continue to check your email, St. Oliver’s Life Teen Facebook group and SOLifeteen on Instagram.  Lots of info will be posted on these sites.

Let us all continue to pray for our families, country and world:

Memorare      
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer.  Amen.

If you have any questions, please email me at youthministry@stolivers.com.

Stay healthy and Blessings to you all!

Lynn
