Re: Face to Face Ministries

Centered in Saskatoon, Face to Face Ministries has been conducting youth retreats and presentations both within this diocese and in several other dioceses of Western Canada. They have been doing so since 2003 and have built a solid experience of evangelization that has touched the hearts and lives of many young people. This is done through joyful praise and worship music, through vibrant preaching faithful to the Catholic teaching, through personal testimonies, through prayer ministry, through Eucharist and Eucharistic adoration. They have brought Jesus Christ and his message of love and truth to many young people either strengthening a faith already present or else bringing to a conversion of heart and ways. In doing so, they have built a strong team and a strong community of support for this ministry.

I offer my recommendation and blessing to their ministry. I encourage those interested in availing themselves of the Services of Face-to-Face Ministries to especially prepare well for their coming to your community by seeking a description of the content, format and style of the retreat or presentation and by planning the follow up in terms of your own on-going youth ministry.

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact my office.

Sincerely in Christ,

Most Rev. Albert LeGatt
Bishop of Saskatoon

First let me say what a great honor and privilege it was for me to be at the Ignite Camp this year! Face to Face Ministries is one of the most unique evangelization ministries I have ever seen. The energetic delivery and powerful messages kept the youth's hearts hungry for the beauty and truth of God’s Word during the entire week. 

This is what makes you unique: the tremendously inspiring and dynamic presentation style of Face to Face Ministries, evenly balanced with time for spiritual enrichment (Mass, prayer, and Adoration) breathes life into the souls of youth who are mired in a culture of death. You rarely see this combination of catechesis and spirituality woven together with such splendor and faithfulness to Church teaching. Ken understands that youth are the future of the Church, and with Face to Face Ministries to guide them, the future looks very bright indeed! 

Thank you for this opportunity to endorse Face to Face Ministries! I would love to work with you again in the future. God bless!

WOW!  In one word I can sum up a Parish Mission with FacetoFace Ministries.  

I have worked with Ken and his team a number of times in the last eight years.  However, the last time the team was in Nipawin they really outdid themselves.  From the moment of first stepping into the church and having a well organized team to set up, to spending time in prayer, spiritually preparing themselves, to the inspiring talks gave both the young and old something to chew on for a long time.  The weekend had a very lively pace, including humorous skits, lively songs, inspiring talks and quiet mediation.  I only wish that the team lived in Nipawin so we could have them come more often.

The testimony of those who have attended FacetoFace Youth Retreats is that they are spirit-filled, and led by individuals who think with the Church.  The many people who have been strengthened  in their personal relationship with the Lord, and in the knowledge and practice of their faith,  are grateful for this generous service provided by FacetoFace Ministries.
