In short, the teens are attracted to truth and acceptance. Teens long for Christ who is the way, the truth, and the life. Though many people don’t realize it, we all have a thirst for this unchanging truth in a world that is moving and changing so quickly. Life Teen also allows teens to experience the truth and acceptance of Christ in the Eucharist, the Word of God, and in relationship with each other.
