What You Have To Say About In Your Faith...
"As a teacher, I can see the importance of a program like IN YOUR FAITH. It deals with real issues that are on the minds of young people. By covering issues that are vital to our faith in a fair and balanced way, young people get a chance to see how incredible our faith is. IN YOUR FAITH also shows us real world, everyday young people who are passionate, excited, curious and even critical of our faith. It's a real asset." Mr. Paul D'Hondt, Science Teacher, St. Michael Catholic Secondary School in Stratford Ontario
IN YOUR FAITH is a power packed program with inspiring stories, reflections on scripture and asking the questions that youth have about our faith. It reaches out to our young people who are searching for answers; it facilitates discussion, conversation and prayer. It truly allows all those who watch to dive into the depths of our journey of faith. It is the only youth program that I know of that will impact our young people in a positive and challenging way in our modern world today. Fr. John Jasica, Pastor, St. Peter's Parish, Goderich, Ontario
We used the "Confirmation" episode of IYF and found it very useful for our class session. The video was informative and very flashy. It offered our students an in-depth teaching on the Sacrament of Confirmation which was not too long and attractive to their age level. Well done. Jeff Gendron, Pastoral Minister, Sacred Heart Church, LaSalle, Ontario
