Make the Connection for Tweens!

Faith Online for Tweens!

Many thanks to Diana K for sharing this great resource with me that she found in Catholic Digest www.catholicdigest.com (a Catholic magazine).

Looking for a way to get your tweens more involved in learning about their faith?
Check out www.Yfaith.co.uk, a website designed in the UK for kids ages 10-13!

According to the "about" page for parents:
"Yfaith is an initiative of the Catholic Agency to Support Evangelization (CASE). It was created in response to the need of parents looking for support in passing on their faith to their children. Based on biblical teaching and the teachings of the Catholic Church, Yfaith aims to facilitate young peoples’ faith exploration, and enhance their understanding and experience of the Catholic faith".

The very interactive kids' "about" page engages them with videos of other kids explaining Yfaith and giving links to help them get started:
"In Get Connected you can hear other Yfaith users’ opinions and their stories about faith. Check out our girls only and boys only pages! In Faith you can explore who God is and how the Holy Spirit can be life changing. In Your World you can read about issues that are important to you, get serious about the environment, and check out reviews of the latest films and books. Sacred Space is space for you and God. From writing letters to listening to songs… there'll be something here that will help you pray".

If you have questions or suggestions for "Make the Connection", feel free to contact me!Peace of Christ to you!
