Spring and summer are great times to take in the beauty of all that is AROUND us. THe following Photo collage can help inspire prayer, but be encouraged to step outside and let the beauty of creation inspire prayer as well.
Chris Stefanick and the team at reallifecatholic.com have complied some really wonderful resources for you to explore this summer on your own or with your friends. Click on the media tab to find a variety of different topics and videos to explore. This first video outlines, and shows what the website has to offer:
This next video is a witness by Chris' wife Natalie about how beauty helped draw her back to God. This summer I want to challenge you to find the beauty in our world, thank God for that beauty, and use it as a way to grow closer to him. Don't forget to check out more resources and videos HERE!

We all need good, Catholic friendships...those people who keep you accountable to who you really are at your core. This summer consider joining the SSJP Young Adults group or the Young Catholics of the Diocese of Des Moines, formerly Novos, for a few events this summer. Links and contact people for both groups can be found on our website HERE. This is a great time of year to get out and be a part of a small faith sharing group! The SSJP group will be looking at some more of the videos from Real Life Catholic together, and discussing some of the topics addressed.
