Never Alone: Life with the Holy Spirit

Never Alone: Life with the Holy Spirit

8 Episodes

Every Catholic Christian is invited into a living relationship with the Holy Spirit. It is in living life with the Holy Spirit that we find answers to some of teens’ deepest longings: Who am I? Where do I belong? How do I know what to do with my life? Is this all there is? 

Combining personal testimony with catechesis, this series was created to bring about this sort of fruitful discussion with students who are preparing to be confirmed as well as those whose confirmation day has already come and gone. As with all YDisciple series, it is designed specifically with small groups in mind.

Each session comes with a Leader Guide for middle school and high school, Participant Guide, and Parent Sheet (English & Spanish)
