Catholic Social Tradition Pastoral Plan by Molly Link
Catholic Social Tradition Pastoral Plan for Valley Youth Group, Wasilla, Alaska
For my CST Capstone, I wanted to create a pastoral plan to teach the principles of Catholic Social Tradition to my friend's youth group in Alaska. Over the past five years, I have gotten to know these middle and high schoolers through my involvement in different youth ministries in the Matanuska Valley area of Alaska. I wanted to create a curriculum of sorts to pass on this beautiful dimension of the Catholic faith to help further form their spiritual lives. The end result is a series of lesson plans that include sources from Tradition and Scripture, each culminating in an activity that concretely utilizes each pillar of CST as well as group discussion questions to help reflect more deeply upon the teens' experience.
