WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA, USA – Young American Catholics have a new website available to them featuring nationally known Catholic speakers, musicians and comedians who have teamed up to help them grow in their faith.
Any Given Sunday (www.anygivensundayproject.com) features 45 national Catholic youth ministry personalities who each writes a reflection for the weekly Mass readings. Each week, the site offers a reflection from one of the participating personalities.
“We wanted to give young people, 13 to 18 years old, something that would help prepare them for Mass and to maybe make it a little more interesting to them,” said Mr Bob Perron, executive director of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston’s Department of Youth Ministry.
“Each week, kids can go on their phone or on their computer and go to Any Given Sunday where there is a short video message for the week from me or a youth board member and then the reflection,” he said.
The site contains background screens for youth, parish resources, information pieces on the site, links to Mass readings and much more.
The site also provides a mobile version; and visitors to the site may subscribe to weekly email reminders about the reflections. n CNS
