You’re In A Battle: Fight Like a Catholic!


9:15am Hospitality
9:45am Program & Eucharistic Adoration
12:45pm Lunch

You have been called to a great mission, a great work. You’ve been commissioned with the “Great Commission” (Mt 28:16-20) to go forth and make disciples, young apostles of the young people in your care.

What a call! What a mission!

But did you ever think that this mission is a battle – a spiritual battle – for the hearts and souls of Catholic young people? Do you know you are in this battle? This battle does not only have spiritual realities, but practical ones as well. And far too many aren’t aware. St. Paul writes about this (cf. Eph. 6:12).

The Good News is that the Church provides a mighty arsenal of weapons to fight the enemy!

In this informative and practical session you will learn how to:
• Identify indicators of battle
• Build a firm foundation for the battle
• Utilize three specific weapons the Church provides for the battle

Gina Bauer is Director of High School Ministry at the Church of Saint Joseph in West St. Paul. She has been featured at Steubenville Conferences, Ave Maria Youth Conferences, and in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and beyond.. Gina will bring her experience and practical wisdom of over 25 years in Catholic Youth Ministry to us so that we can fight like a Catholic.
