The 2016 Life Teen Leadership Conference can be the catalyst to transform your student leaders.
With over 30 years of experience, Life Teen's Catholic Youth Ministry Convention has become one of America's premier events for everyone involved in parish youth ministry. The Catholic Teen Bible from Life Teen meets teenagers where they are in their faith walk with authentic, clear and candid language. This is your one stop shop for great Catholic books, community, gifts, events, music, and resources. Life Teen strengthens our teens' Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church. College Life is a simple online series-based solution to the problem of keeping students connected to their Catholic faith in college. Walter’s job at Life is to develop and prepare film negatives into magazine ready art.  He arrives to work on his birthday to the bad news that his company is going “dot com” and the downsizing will begin soon.
There are some wonderfully touching moments and the film is shot in some extraordinary locations. There is a beautiful contrast between Walter, the steady and reliable nine-to-fiver, and Sean, the globetrotting adventurer.
It should also be noted that the relationship that Walter has with his mother and sister is a wonderful representation of familial love. With the exception of one slightly off-color joke and some very minimal cursing, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a squeaky-clean and classy movie.


The portrayal of Walter’s affection of Cheryl is wholesome and sweet and there is very little violence (and what there is shown is staged as part of Walter’s daydreams).
I think I cried about three different times during the movie because it was unexpectedly beautiful and inspiring. Covecrest is a community of Catholics committed to transforming teens, transforming parishes, and transforming culture.
This week-long conference takes place at the beautiful Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas. There will be over 60 creative sessions to choose from, led by some of the best youth leaders around. After making a pitiful first impression on the wholly unlikeable middle management guy who is in charge of firing people (Adam Scott) Walter retreats to his office only to discover that world famous photographer Sean O’Connell (Sean Penn) has sent him a roll of negatives to develop.  O’Connell encloses a special gift and note to Walter thanking him for years of work in making his photographs into the great works they became. This leads quiet, unassuming, reliable Walter to take a once in a lifetime journey in order to find the mysterious Sean O’Connell and discover the secret of the missing frame. Overall, what seemed most enjoyable about the film was that it was somehow… quietly gorgeous.
Walter’s mother (Shirley MacLaine) proves to be the key to the success of his quest, and his obvious affection and respect for her shines through. Join us this summer at #LTLC as we raise up a generation of disciples that are sure to transform our Church! He also mentions in the note that frame 25 is his best work ever and captures the very essence of Life.


The message comes through loud and clear that the most beautiful people are the ones who don’t demand to be the center of attention. Ours is often a culture where elderly members are cast aside and overlooked, but Walter’s mother is as kind and stalwart as her son and helps him to succeed on his hero’s quest. O’Connell also telegraphs the management at Life and basically demands that frame 25 be used as the cover shot of the final printed magazine before the company goes digital. The story was solid and Walter is on  the modern day embodiment of what a true hero’s quest would look like. The other major message here is one does not have to be a gun slinging, chopper riding, ungentlemanly character to be the star and get the girl. Where Sean, the famous photographer, is the well-known and center staged Mary, Walter is the dedicated Martha, who selflessly and quietly works in the background.
One could be an honestly good guy with a high sense of responsibility and a decent moral compass who stands up for things that are right and good and still win the day. Through their 16 year association and working relationship, both men have come to deeply respect one another and in the end, are able to honor that about the other which they find admirable. Walter steps out of his comfort zone to take an amazing journey to meet Sean on the mountain, and Sean honors Walter in one of the most beautifully perfect ways that I have ever seen friendship and hard work rewarded.
