After being involved in youth ministry and evangelizing Catholic youth for many years, we find that the best way to keep our children Catholic is to form them from an early age to love and serve the Lord. Parents are the prime teachers of faith, the chief catechists, and they should be equipped to teach and practice the faith.
Catholic speaker and evangelist, Laura Domanico, has an outstanding, practical guide for
“Keeping Your Teens Catholic.” It is a top 10 list of suggestions with tangible ways that parents can form their kids become Catholic disciples into adulthood, available as an mp3 download on iTunes and Amazon (under $10).
This Catholic top ten list includes:
- Giving God Your Sunday
- Having Daily Updates
- Establishing Boundaries
- Making Faith Fun
- Eating Together
- Showing Mercy
- Having Good Friendships
- Setting Family Faith Goals
- Monitoring Technology
- Understanding Freedom

This epic audio resource for Catholic parents is a great tool for DREs and Religious Ed Directors, youth ministers, Catholic school teachers, and leaders of adult faith formation.
By teaching our young people to live out their Catholic faith – strengthen their faith muscles if you will – at an early age, we can have more confidence that they will journey with Christ through high school and college, into adulthood and continue to pass on the deposit of faith.
