Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

Glory to Jesus Christ!

The Great Commission of Christ to "go forth, make disciples of all nations" Matthew 28:19, was not only a commission that the apostles received at the Ascension of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but it is His last command to all of us!

We have provided a nine lesson program to use with the youth of your parish. The lessons are written for the age group of 10-14 but can easily be adjusted up for use with teenagers.

Also provided are a list of additional resources that you may use with all ages within your parish youth.

May our Lord bless you as your continue to work with His children.

In Him
