  • This book is a welcome resource for all those who work with young teens. It covers topics like coping with the death of a parent or sibling, depression, alcoholism, and drugs. It also offers insightful prayers and reinforcing activities that will comfort as well as strengthen young teens as they try to better understand and cope with their losses. it is ideal for parochial school programs, intergenerational events, retreats, family devotions, and more.

    The pastoral approach of Guiding Young Teens through Lifes Losses makes it a must-have resource for catechists and youth ministers.

    Loss can take many forms: a missing assignment, the loss of a friend, an accident, and the loss of a parent. One of the most difficult and delicate things a catechist has to do is be present to a teen during times of loss. Helping the young person pray together with his/her peers is an effective pastoral approach to dealing with grief. Each of the fifteen prayer services in this resource is developed around a clear, creative, ready-to-use format. While these prayers and activities are intended for use with young teens in faith formation sessions, they can easily be adapted for use in small and large groups of worship, education, outreach, and nurture opportunities.
