Welcome to the St. Philip Institute Youth Formation Program!

The Way of Christ for Teens: “To Whom Shall We Go?” is the first volume of youth formation offered by The St. Philip Institute of Catechesis and Evangelization.

This curriculum is for high school students in a variety of settings: as part of weekly youth group meetings, in small faith sharing groups, and even in large group faith formation settings. Whether you meet in your parish classrooms, a local coffee shop, or an outdoor picnic, the curriculum leads students through the primary themes of discernment and prayer in the Catholic faith.

Using the time honored method of Lectio Divina and supported by the teaching of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, each lesson contains a passage from Sacred Scripture and discussion about doctrinal and spiritual connections in real life situations. With help from the saints and wisdom from catechists, students will engage the life of the Church’s liturgical patrimony and be led through the devotional hallmarks of Catholic piety, including the Rosary, The Stations of the Cross, and Eucharistic Adoration. The goal is to help them solidify the connection between knowledge of and relationship to Christ, the one to whom we go.
