The young people will deepen their knowledge of the popes since Saint Peter.
The young people should be able to describe the roles of the pope, bishops, and priests.
- List of popes
- Paper, pencils
- Research materials
- Arrange the young people in pairs.
- Have each pair choose from the list a pope they would've liked to have met.
- Direct the young people to interview this pope based on their research of the following topics:
his life and times
how he became pope
how he guided the Church
the difficulties he faced as pope
papal writings for which he is remembered
- When each pair has finished preparing their interview, invite volunteers to share their work with the group. Other young people may be invited to ask questions.
