On the Journey by Sr Karen Kent

This is a resource book for Catechists, Chaplains and all who pray with young people

It was published by Columba Press in 2006 and is available via their website:  www.columba.ie


How often have you wondered ‘How can we involve young people in our liturgies?’

or ‘What can I use for prayer/assembly today?’

This book provides an easily accessible answer to these questions often heard on the lips of chaplains, catechists, youth leaders, parish liturgy groups and all who pray with young people. It offers 35 ‘prayers’ for the journey through the seasons with young people, in school and parish settings. They are the product of a journey made with young people and are appealing and stimulating to them in their faith journey.
