Youth is a time of passages of many kinds. Primarily it is a time of passage from childhood to adulthood. For the Church this means creating a strong sense of support among peers and mentors, providing settings for genuine community, and encouraging serious thought and dialogue about the meaning of faith and its impact on life choices. There are three components to this passage.
