As parents, you play the primary role in your teen’s religious education. Our hope is that you will use VISION as a resource as you immerse your teen in Catholic culture and fuel his or her religious imagination. VISION will introduce your teen to the fundamental spiritual concepts of “feeling called,” “discerning a vocation,” and “knowing God’s will.” Its many articles and features will also give your teen a sense of the diverse forms and expressions of vocation – as a single person, married, or in religious life.
Your teen will learn of the important role men and women religious—priests, brothers, sisters, nuns--have played throughout Christian history and the contributions religious communities have made to the holiness, influence, and expansion of the church.
Did you know that young people who are active in their local parishes are much more likely to consider a religious vocation than those who are not? So, in addition to all the great resources VISION has to offer your teen, be sure they also are well connected with a community of faith!
