What practices and activities help young people grow spiritually and reinforce their Catholic identity? Thanks to a nationwide research project that explored the attitudes and practices of parishes with dynamic youth ministry, we now have answers to those questions. Effective Practices for Dynamic Youth Ministry summarizes of the project's findings and makes recommendations for other parishes based on those findings.
