Intended to raise the standard of excellence for liturgies involving young people, Preparing to Celebrate with Youth helps a ministry team create liturgies that call young people to "full, conscious and active participation," as the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy instructs.
Preparing to Celebrate with Youth is a guide for those entrusted with the task of guiding and supporting young people as they accept their roles in the community. It provides information on the principles underlying liturgy planning, lists essentials required to plan liturgies effectively, and discusses practical points necessary to prepare liturgies with comfort and skill.
Chapters are "Real Members Just As They Are," "Beware of These Topics," "Full, Conscious, and Active Participation," "Planning and Preparing," and "Essentials." A bibliography is also included for further reading.
