Sites for inquiring teens


#1

My 18 yr. old daughter asked if I knew any good sites where she could find “stuff about the Bible and the Church”. :hmmm: Even though we are active Catholics, most of her peers aren’t. So, any suggestions or sites? Thanks!

:blessyou:

Happy Easter!! :slight_smile:

Three sites are kinda cool. Its up to you, Mom.

  1. www.americancatholic.org
    They have some nice stuff, especially the Saint of the Day, where the real biography of why the person became a saint is mentioned. Something nice for everyone, but directed at Teen, but not ‘stuffy’ either.

  2. Not a Catholic site, but definitely something of interest for you and your daughter:
    www.standupgirl.com
    A prolife website for young girls who are unexpectedly pregnant, done by ‘Becky’ who has been there and tells them to do the right thing, be brave, and have your baby.

  3. A teen page: www.faithmag.com
    On the left there is a link called FAITHteen. Its out of the Archdiocese of Lansing, Michigan. Down at the bottom of the page lists all previous issues.

Hope these help.:cool:

Thank you.

newadvent.com/ is a good site. It offers thousands of articles. It has the church fathers, it has the summa, it has the bible. It has alot of info.

Happy Easter.:wave:

I did have a catholic teen site, but it has moved or is no longer available.

A quick search under Catholic teen found these.

catholicyouth.freeservers.com/

lifeteen.org/ This one looks pretty good. Has a section for Bible, forums, lots of good stuff it looks like.

God Bless,
Maria

Instead of providing you with links to a bunch of sites, I figured I’d let someone else do it :smiley:

CatholicCulture.com has a section where they review various Catholic websites. The page I linked to has all their site reviews categorized by the kind of site it is (Faith, Sacraments, Evangelization, Saints, Popes, etc)

Just be careful, since this site does reviews, it includes the bad with the good. Make sure you check the rating/review of a site before you visit it. Catholic Culture bases it’s reviews on 3 criteria: Fidelity, Resources, and Useability. Only trust websites that get a Green rating of fidelity from Catholic Culture. Fidelity measures how accurately it represents true Catholic teaching.

Why not recommend that she look around here. These forums have taught me so much (and I’m 17 if you are wondering)
