Youth activities???

edited December 1969 in Faith Issues
I belong to a large group of youth group in my church. Our ages between 16-25 years old.
We r facing a little situation between our group for the longest time we have been ignoring or not participating in church activities.
We are slighting away from church bet by bet; abouna has tried a lot to get us back on track, going to church, attending to liturgy and many things. But for some reason we r not responding back.
Things get very old to us very quick we don’t see them interesting enough. And I would like to ask all of u of idea's or activities that we could do all together in church that is fun and beneficial to us and to make us more churchly active.
   Thank you and May god bless u all ;)

  • ahhh! The youth meeting, our youth meeting is on fridays too, i love it! :) we have this servent named ragie and he tries to make it intresting, and funny every week so we are not deathly bored! and we sing songs , its fun, and spiritual, i dunno about your church but our church is really involved with youth, i know that we ahve a christmas to trip to ottowa and montreal, and sometimes rochester NY, we have trips to Maskoka its a place here, like camp its fun, and spiritual, and our church always has retreats for girls and guys, and then we have a club, after the youth meeting you hang out there and play table tennis, or pool or whatever! :) its great! you could also start a choir or something. At ourch church the youth meetins are split grd 9-12 and then university meeting, at the university meeting they did something really interesting to bring people, but i am not sure what it was, how bout u try a play or something, make it ebtertaining yet spiritual! that will draw attention! i thank ragie for writing all the plays...he is funny!!! :) anyways thats my little thing!

  • Hey Rina thanx :) but we already have a youth group meeting and we have the best servant :) he is really nice. But WE HAVE SHORT ACTIVITIES :( and that’s the problem. And plus the majority of us r guys and its kind of hard b/c they play soccer all the time. Our church doesn’t organize trips, but it’s good idea about tasbeha we don’t do it so we should but there is a problem with the guys how we should make them go since they play soccer. We hang out a lot all of us and we really enjoy it. :( If u have any ideas please reply back rina and tell me :)
    FULLY RELY ON GOD - yeah I want to do it in church, we usually go out and have fun so now its time for church and that’s why I wanted some idea's do it in church. And so far we attend to Holy mass and everything but we don’t have a lot of activities.
    SaviourOfMySoul -so far I will tell them about to do tasbeha and stuff, we usually stay in church and we really enjoy it their b/c we do a lot of things for fun. Thanx u guys please pray for our church :)
  • u kno wut Mary thats great that u have a youth meeting but a lil advise make the activities a lil longer like last week i got home at one o'clock in the morning.. it was soooooooooo much fun.. and soccer is awesome.. and tell u wut ok like maybe u guys shud go to like the park or sumthing u kno let the guys do they're own thing and u girls can maybe sign spritual songs talk or if u guys have a lil grass area at ur church that wud be awesomer.. our guys love football.. lol.. believe me they play in the middle of the night.. i mean in the dark.. lol.. they also play basketball but sense we don't have a court they go to the park after the litergy..
    its also practice for them sense they compete against other churches.. i'm gonna go watch them play when they r going.. and they're gonna play at the beach so its gonna be GREAT.... ;) :-*... GOOD LUCK SWEETIE... :-*
