A comprehensive ministry with adolescents involves several components: advocacy, catechesis, community life, evangelization, justice and service, leadership development, pastoral care, and prayer and worship. These provide a framework for the Catholic community to respond to the needs of young people and to involve young people in sharing their unique gifts.
