For students at St. Joseph School in Fort Atkinson, it’s not unusual to look outside and see a soccer game taking place on the field next to the school -- only this one was being played by horses.

Youth Contests

FALL CONTEST 2014 -- The Holy Family of Nazareth: A Model for My Family

As Catholic bishops from around the world begin the Synod of Bishops in Rome this October, Pope Francis asks all Catholics to pray for families: grandparents, parents, and children.

The bishops will meet to discuss many things related to the importance of the family in learning and sharing our faith within the family and to the outside world.

The Holy Family is a model of the theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity.

• FAITH: What is the most important thing your grandparents and parents have taught you about Jesus? In what ways have they taught you?

• HOPE: The Holy Family experienced some difficult times, as all families do. But their trust in God gave them hope that He would see them through. How has our Catholic faith helped you and your family?

• CHARITY: Charity is showing love to one another. How do the members of your family show love for one another? How does your family show Christ’s love to people in your community? What more could your family do to be examples of our faith for others?

The Catholic Herald is offering youth drawing and writing contests for students in kindergarten through 12th grade to answer these questions. All students are invited to participate, including students in Catholic schools, parish religious education programs, and homeschooling families.

Details on the drawing and writing contests are being sent out this week to principals and religious education directors around the diocese.

Learn more about the Catholic Herald Fall Youth Contest. Ask your teacher for more details.

Below are links to the contest information for both the drawing and writing portions of the contest. The deadline is Friday, Nov. 14, 2014.

FORT ATKINSON -- For students at St. Joseph School in Fort Atkinson, it’s not unusual to look outside and see a soccer game taking place on the field next to the school.

Much to their delight, some new faces visited them to play a game on a recent Monday morning -- their names were Jack, Tex, Bandit, and Prince. The game was equine soccer. Yes, their four new friends were horses.

The idea for the equine soccer presentation was Principal Kari Homb's -- herself a rider with friends involved with America's Equine Soccer League (AESL).

Learning from the past for a better future

My brother, Michael, got married last weekend. While watching him walk down the church's aisle to make a lifetime commitment to Samantha, now his wife, I ended up thinking about relationships, about the guys I dated, about the girls he'd once dated, and why things worked out or flamed out.

I thought of the people my friends ended up marrying and the decisions that kept some other friends of mine perpetually single. How do you create a good relationship, one that ends up getting you down the aisle instead of in the land of tears and heartbreak?

Of course, teens shouldn't worry about getting married at such a young age. There's plenty of time for that. But there's a lot they can learn about themselves and about what they want out of life by examining the people they take to the movies or prom.
