Youth group theme this semester: The Precepts of the Church

Jesus Christ gave Simon Peter (Peter) the extraordinary power of developing a Christian community. The primacy of Peter means his supreme authority in teaching, governing, and sanctifying the people of God. This right to make laws is used by the bishops, the successors of the Apostles, and especially by the Pope. Jesus gave Peter the highest power in the church. The precepts of the church  are certain duties expected of Catholic Christians today. These precepts further explain the Law of God. This is the reason why we must obey them. There are 7 duties expected by Catholic Christians to follow, these are not just a list of rules, but a way to live in order to receive the promise from God: to live with him in eternity. The precepts are:

  • To keep holy Sunday
  • Holy Communion and the Sacrament of Reconciliation
  • To study Catholic teaching to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation
  • To observe the marriage laws of the church
  • To strengthen and support the church
  • To do penance
  • To join in the mission of the church
