You need to start and KEEP talking to teen about drug and alcohol abuse, including prescription drugs. It is so important to be clear, firm and consistent. Let them know drugs are NOT acceptable for your family. Find out who they are hanging out with - are parents around? If watching a movie that has drug use, use it as an opportunity to start a convo about it. Help them plan parties at YOUR house so you can make sure they are drug-free. Remember: Be firm, clear and consistent!

Spoons - Youth Group Game

Youth Group Is Going Again! Last month we started doing a monthly Sunday evening youth Mass. Previously, our youth Mass had just been one of the regular Sunday Masses, just with a teen choir and teens serving as lectors and ushers. Switching to having the Sunday evening Mass once per month seems to be helping. We have Mass at 6PM and then we have a potluck social afterwards.
