Teen Masses are a huge part of having a successful Life Teen program! You may have the most dynamic youth group in the world, but once they leave for college or move or just graduate the program...if they're not rooted in the Eucharist, then their faith will most likely collapse when not in the LT setting.
Teens need to know they're being valued...and dedicating a Mass to them helps them see that the Church (and Jesus by extension) value them specifically. If your parish can't pull off a Teen Mass, try to build out of another Mass and encourage attendance (make it the de facto Teen Mass)!
Thanks for these @"", I'll make sure everyone follows the rules!
This was one of my favorite articles about the Barna report on parent and youth ministers goals for youth ministry. We just see parents as an opportunity and soul who deserves our care, attention, and service.
