This resource accompanies the Young Saints travelling exhibition of six portable pull-up banners featuring images of six young saints. As contemporary saints, the faces of these six young people are intended to draw young people into a recognition that holy lives are lived even today, and that extraordinary sanctity may be found in the ordinariness of familiar faces.
The travelling exhibition may be booked for your parish, school or community by contacting the Archdiocesan Office for Youth at email@example.com /
This resource may be used in the following ways:
• Display the banners in your parish, school, or community on significant days e.g. World Youth Day (held on Palm Sunday annually), Vocations Sunday, All Saints Day.
• Run a youth group session featuring the banners and resource. Allocate one saint to each small group, and reflect on their life using the biography presented in this resource:
o What challenges in this young saint’s life can you identify with?
o How is love expressed in this young saint’s life?
o What can you learn from this young saint’s example?
Conclude with the prayer or reflection presented with each saint’s biography.
