"It has often been said that children and youth are the future of the Church. This is a true statement, but only if children and youth are the "present" of the Church as well. If they are not taught to serve in leadership capacities in the worship and daily life of today's Church, there will be no future. We need only to examine our own parishes to discover that the young people who continue to attend worship regularly are the same ones who are allowed to participate in leadership capacities. We must continually enable this to happen."
