The Mass as Teens Have Never Seen it Before

Altaration addresses head-on one of the biggest problems we all face: how do we get Catholic teens to appreciate the awesome beauty and mystery of the Mass…and to actually look forward to attending and participating?

Through a unique learning experience, including powerful cinematography and workbook resources, teens will come to see the Mass and the priesthood in a dramatically new way. Altaration is designed to stir thought, create conversation, dispel myths, and inspire young souls to a deep and lasting love for the Mass. The goal of Altaration is not to fill teens’ heads with information but to pierce their hearts with transformation.

After experiencing the “why” behind the “what” of the Mass, Catholic teens will…

  • Enter prepared,
  • Participate with sincerity,
  • And exit with purpose!

Altaration is an evangelistic work of art. Combining lush beautiful music with visually stunning scenes and a passionate proclamation of the Gospel, Altaration has the power to inspire the heart of even the most disengaged teen. Altaration is a gift to the Church.

 Theology of the Body for Teens (9-12)

Take a look at the brief seven minute video below:

What is Theology of the Body?

The Theology of the Body refers to the series of 129 lectures given by St. John Paul II during his Wednesday audiences in Rome between September 1979 and November 1984. These addresses were later compiled and published as a single work entitled The Theology of the Body According to John Paul II. The Theology of the Body covers such topics as the bodily dimension of the human person, the nature of human sexuality, the human need for communication, and the nature of marriage.

It is more than an exposition of the Church’s teachings on human sexuality. It is, in fact, the Catholic Sacramental worldview, understood, structured, and articulated for a culture plagued by a diseased understanding of man. When properly understood and truly lived, that worldview has the power to transform the way men and women understand their bodies and their souls, their masculinity and femininity, their vocation in this life, and their destiny in the next.
