Monthly Web Picks

With this month's picks we'll concentrate on youth (but adults can look at them too!).

Philomena: A Place to Be a Girl & Be With God at was started by Jean-Ann Hand who, with her husband Joe, is known for originally composed Catholic music (including “I Want to Live My Life On the Rock,” theme song of Jeff Cavins' popular EWTN show). Besides an online ezine, the site also offers girls a membership in Club Philomena, which offers scheduled chat meetings, contests and other fun stuff.

Pope John Paul II's message archive for World Youth Day at messages/youth/index.htm is always worth looking into.

LifeTeen at challenges high school teen-agers to ‘Get a Life ... in Christ!’

Real Faith TV at is put together by youth and adults from the Diocese of Trenton, N.J. Their goal is to reach out to teens who are looking for answers to many of the issues they face in today's world, and help them to deal with difficult issues through a Catholic faith perspective. See their TV shows online, ask a priest a question or read reflections by teens.

“Life on the Rock” with Jeff Cavins at is another TV show for youth. Here you can watch a show live, see past shows and start a youth group.
