Video “The Call, God and me”

15 March 2017 |by CCEE Media Office | 0 Comments | Best Practices

Pursuing the Year of Consecrated Life (November 30, 2014 – February 2, 2015), here is a video clip “the Call”. This short film wants to be a pedagogical tool produced by the French Religious Conference in partnership with the French national service for vocations (SNEJV). The objectives are several : provoke an interpellation and a first reflexion, engaging debates and propositions. This video does not say everything. It is neither an illustration nor an instruction. It was experienced within groups of high school students and young people, and with adults working as youth ministry or vocation service members.

With adults, the video will enable exchanges and debates towards a joint culture of young and vocation ministry.

With young people, the video could be projected either to begin a meeting or at the end of a meeting and used as a synthesis, or during a vigil prayer in a more contemplative moment.

This video, conceived to be a tool integrated in a possible activity, could also find its place in a larger project integrated in a vocation ministry developing a call and interpellation culture.

The questioning, developed into 4 steps related to one another, will help the leader in animating the group.

Accanto alla formazione dei giovani si offre un iter formativo ad altri agenti di pastorale giovanile (laici, frati, suore, sacerdoti, chierici, catechisti, leader dei vari gruppi e movimenti). Per la realizzazione di questi scopi si utilizzano varie metodologie pedagogiche dell’accompagnamento qualificato, concentrandosi sulla presenza tra i giovani e con i giovani, attraverso vari incontri di preghiera, formazione, pellegrinaggi, divertimento etc. Uno spazio specifico viene dedicato al processo del discernimento vocazionale. Aiutiamo a scegliere la propria vocazione alla vita e alla santità mostrando il valore e significato di ogni tipo di vocazione alla vita nella famiglia, alla vita consacrata, al sacerdozio. In questo caso ci serviamo del nostro programma: „Sette passi del discernimento vocazionale” . Le nostre attività si possono seguire tramite il servizio di media sociali.

Creating an ambiance in a Catholic university for vocational discernment

10 March 2017 |by CCEE Media Office | 0 Comments | Best Practices

The worldwide study on “Youth cultures in catholic universities” conducted by the Federation in 2013 covered over 17,000 students in 55 universities from 35 countries in the world and revealed, among others, that students perceive the university as a course provider allowing them to prepare mainly for their professional lives. A consequence of this so-narrow image of a Catholic university is that the influence of Catholic ideals as well as the university campus minister on students is incredibly tiny.

Aware that some inspiring models of campus minister can be found among Catholic universities around the world and that thorough attention has to be paid to this issue, IFCU is about to launch a project aiming at creating an ambiance that nurtures the inner ethical and spiritual dimensions in students from Catholic universities where the “customer-provider” vision prevails in a great manner. IFCU wishes to contribute to the formation of holistic human beings that care for society and for their fellows.

International Catholic Conference of Guidism

10 March 2017 |by CCEE Media Office | 0 Comments | Best Practices

Guiding, in accordance with the intentions of its Founder Baden-Powell, leads young people to become the artisans of their own development, and its methods stimulate the maturity of the individual and of communities. It is because of this that Catholics recognize the values of the Gospel in the fundamentally liberating education propounded by the Guide method.

I.C.C.G. is a call from the Church to live a life of communion, to deepen Faith and to share Christian experience.
Thus:
– it participates in the life of the Universal Church, particularly as an International Catholic Organization (I.C.O.) by offering its own experiences and receiving those of others;
– it ensures that the world of young people is represented within the Church;
– it participates in the evolution and deepening of the spiritual values of Guiding through the dialogue between Catholics and non-Catholics, believers and non-believers.

Catholic school – “Dobre gimnazjum”

9 March 2017 |by CCEE Media Office | 0 Comments | Best Practices

One of the ways of accompanying young people by diocesan church in Poznan is running catholic schools. Students get integral upbringing including spiritual, intellectual and physical formation. We  desire to indicate them how to be a Christian and how to believe in Jesus in today’s world.
The school organization is based on creating good relationship between a student and a master. It can be realized both on teachers-students  basis and individuals-Jesus  one, as we believe it is Jesus who is the  greatest Master of all.
The school’s mission is also to cooperate with families the students come from as we strongly believe they should not replace them but support families .
Catholic schools emphasize not only the educational dimension but pedagogical one. “For the true education aims at formation of the human person in the pursuit of his ultimate end and of the good of the societies of which, as man, he is a member, and in whose obligation, as an adult, he will share” (Declaration on christian education Gravissimum educationis, 1). So the aim of such a school is not only to prepare young people to take up tasks in their adult life but at the same time  to orient them on the ultimate aim which is salvation.

The Youth Choir and Orchestra – “Jordan” & “Paradiso2017”

9 March 2017 |by cceesitesAdmin | 0 Comments | Best Practices
The Youth Choir and Orchestra – “Jordan”

Young people nowadays want to be part of something important. They need the involvement into big social and at the same time spiritual events. One of many initiative prepared for young people in our diocese is the Choir and Orchestra Jordan. The band was created in 2015 and the idea was to gather people from the diocese to build a community in which they could together discover the beauty of sacred music. Firstly, it is important to look for young people who have passion and do care about music standard. Secondly, nothing could be better than observing young people involved in liturgical life of church. Liturgical music is very often underestimated but it is still very beautiful and young people want to spread it. What’s more, the priest plays an important role in this community. The priest should accompany young people and help them.

The conductor leads the choir and orchestra but the priest takes care of it – he is present during the rehearsals and pray with them, he meets with the leaders and explain them the liturgy, he organizes common services and prayers. Last but not least, it is crucial to build relationships with the members of the choir and orchestra and be open for new people who want to join. That’s why we organize common trips and events – to build the community and to create a space where young people feel good and develop at the same time.


World Youth Day Spirit Community – “Paradiso2017”

During the World Youth Day we could observed joy following from the meeting with other young Christians. Inspired with the World Youth Day, we’ve decided to organize a similar meeting in our diocese. End of June we are going to celebrate “Paradiso2017”. We invite young people from our diocese to come to Gostyń for five days and to make a big feast. Every day is connected with one of the Saints or Blessed. The main theme of the meeting is the kerygma.

We invited different bishops to lead the conferences for us. The dialogue with the bishops is for young people very important so there will also be an opportunity to ask questions. During the day young people will take part in different kind of workshops. There is a variety of possibilities to choose. The main goal is to develop young people’s passions. At the end of the day we will celebrate a Holy Mass with our bishops and with the liturgical arrangement by our Choir and Orchestra Jordan. Each day will end with a concert. It is the first week of summer holiday so we plan to combine the time for pleasure and the time for prayer. Young people can come to “Paradiso2017” with their priests or catechists or even alone – everyone is invited.

We are preparing a campsite and arranging a place for meals. We want to create a kind of Young People’s Town – the place where they will rest, meet new people, integrate, pray and develop.

St. Roch Student Pastoral Care Centre ( Archdiocese of Poznan)

St. Roch Student Ministry acts at St. Roch Parish in Poznan. It is located close to the campus of Poznan University of Technology. Many young people who join the Ministry are students at this University. At the Ministry there are several groups which meet regularly at a Holy Mass and group meetings during the week:
Catholic Youth Association is a group of students who want to have solid foundation of faith and evangelize others showing that faith in Jesus Christ can guide us at work and universities, in the media or public space.
Diakonia of Prayer gathers students who want to deepen their relationship with God through prayer, reading the Bible, by spiritual formation and in relationship with another person.
Ciupa is a group in which students help disabled people in everyday activities. They pray and spend time together. Ciupa is a unique group in which the disabled can experience love and students can really learn to serve others.
Most is a post-academic group for people who already graduated but still want to develop their faith in a community.
Once a month a Holy Mass in English is celebrated together with a Bible meeting for international students.
Holy Masses on Sunday evenings, vigils, early morning masses celebrated in Advent, retreats and many other events taking place at the Ministry are beautified by singing of the student schola.
Every Sunday evening is a unique time at the Ministry. Students can adore the Host, meet Jesus Christ in confession and in the Eucharist during a special Holy Mass at 8:00 pm.
St. Roch Student Ministry is a community of good, interesting and enthusiastic people who are aware that the presence of Jesus Christ in their lives is what they really need and what they long for.

8 March 2017 |by cceesitesAdmin | 0 Comments | Best Practices
The young on the threshold – preparation to the sacrament of Confirmation

The aim of the program is not to transfer knowledge but to lead a young man to the decision of faith, which is personal encounter with Jesus as a living Person. The other goal is to arouse the need of community of growth in the Church. Candidates to Confirmation should be guided in a way they would like to enter the religious community of peers and become its animators, ready to share the experience of faith.

Its aim is to form future leaders and animators ready to work with the youth. Classes take place once a month throughout the academic year and specialists of different areas are invited to guide them e.g. the biblical foundations, the spiritual life, the principles of social communication and evangelization.
