Split the young people into small groups. Give each group an age-appropriate article to read and discuss.
Have each group present a summary of the article and the fruits of their discussion (based on reflection questions written by the youth minister ahead of time).

Whether you're serving in a parish, Catholic education, faith formation, communications, or pro-life, youth, young adult, or campus ministry--there's something for you!
