GOT RELIGION HOW CHURCHED MOSQUES AND SYNAGOGUES CAN BRING YOUNG PEOPLE BACK

product image
$24.95

Why are young people dropping out of religious institutions? Can anything be done to reverse the trend? In Got Religion?, Naomi Schaefer Riley examines the reasons for the defection, why we should care, and how some communities are successfully addressing the problem.
The traditional markers of growing up are getting married and becoming financially independent. But young adults are delaying these milestones, sometimes for a full decade longer than
their parents and grandparents. This new phase of emerging adulthood is diminishing the involvement of young people in religious institutions, sapping the strength and vitality of faith communities, and creating a more barren religious landscape for the young adults who do eventually decide to return to it. Yet, clearly there are some churches, synagogues, and mosques that are making strides in bringing young people back to religion.
Got Religion? offers in-depth, on-the-ground reporting about the most successful of these institutions and shows how many of the structural solutions for one religious group can be adapted to work for another.
The faith communities young people attach themselves to are not necessarily the biggest or the most flashy. They are not the wealthiest or the ones employing the latest technology. Rather, they are the ones that create stability for young people, that give them real responsibility in a community and that help them form the habits of believers that will last a lifetime."

MY CONFIRMATION BOOK

$16.99

Part keepsake, part teaching book, this small volume is filled with inspiration, encouragement, and reflections to ponder for 4th graders and up. Through simple text, it explains the privileges and responsibilities imparted through the sacrament of Confirmation. Compelling stories about saints and children their own age will help kids become more familiar with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and learn how the gifts can be active in their own lives. The apostolic mission of a confirmed Catholic is emphasized and readers are reminded that the sacrament of Confirmation is exciting the same Holy Spirit who appeared to the apostles and the Blessed Mother at Pentecost is the one who will come to them when they are confirmed. Too often we whisk our youth through the Sacrament without a clear understanding of what's happening. That's tragic, because a grace misunderstood is easily unappreciated, and a grace unappreciated is easily lost. MyConfirmationBook empowers young people to receive the Holy Spirit in a way that's active, personal, willing, and enduring. Highly recommended.
- Mike Aquilina, co-host of"The Lamb's Supper"on EWTN, and Executive Vice-President of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology A wonderful tool for parents, religious education leaders, and all who are concerned about raising up strong young Catholics Catholics who will be able to boldly and joyfully proclaim their faith and engage a culture so in need of God.
-Teresa Tomeo, Catholic syndicated talk show host, Ave Maria Radio" Another winner from Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle! Clear, concise and inspiring - everythingConfirmationcandidates could want in a book that will help them prepare for one of the most important moments in their lives! A great resource for parents and catechists, too. Kudos on a job well done!"
- Marge Fenelon Author of Strengthening Your Family: A Catholic Approach to Holiness at Home"Donna-Marie Cooper O Boyle has created a resource of great simplicity and beauty for young confirmands. Tenderly and wisely written, " My Confirmation Book"explains and explores the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. Concise, but powerful, the text includes illuminating stories and discussion questions, and a superb collection of brief quotes from saints and sacred scripture. I am eager to buy an armload of copies, not only for all the young people I know who are preparing for the Sacrament ofConfirmation, but for those who have already received it. In fact, I found so much encouragement and clarity in the pages of this small book of reflections; I m going to give them to my adult friends, as well."
