Life Teen is a youth apostolate that leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church. All the while doing this as a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church.

Life Teen was launched as a parish-based youth ministry in Mesa, AZ  in 1985 focused on the Mass and gathering teens together at a Life Night. We continue to be focused on bringing teens to Christ in the Eucharist and gathering them to be formed in the Roman Catholic faith.

There are over 1800 parishes implementing the Edge or Life Teen program. Life Teen can be found in 31 countries, including Haiti, Canada, South Africa, China, Malaysia, The Philippines, East Africa, Uganda, Germany, Mexico, Argentina, Spain, England, and the Netherlands.The combined number of teens and adults who go to a Life Night or Edge Night, go to a Summer Camp or Steubenville Youth Conference each summer, interact with us on or social media, or who go to a weekly youth Mass is well over 100,000.The group has interacted with a wide variety of speakers , one such ,Mark Hart , is a popular speaker and leader within the church and Life Teen.
