Follow Me! trains the next generation to follow Christ. In doing so, we help young people to hear the call of Christ and support them on their journey towards service in the family, in society and in the church.

How Follow Me works

Fun

Fun

Joy, fun and quality time together are central to the Christian life. This can also be seen in many reports about Jesus and his disciples. Therefore, they are also more than relevant on our weekends.

Cross-Community

Cross-Community

Each weekend has participants from at least three different groups/communities. In this way, we want to live unity in all diversity.

Catholic

Catholic

All of our content is checked by a theological commission. Holy Mass, confession, Eucharistic adoration etc. have a central place in our program, along with various other forms of prayer.

Weekends

Weekends

The training covers 8 weekends. These are divided over one year and therefore participation is possible alongside work/studies/school. Each of these weekends has a thematic focus.

Teaching Units

Teaching Units

The topic of the weekend will be taken up in several inputs. The focus is on the practical applicability in the life of the individual. The main sources are the personal testimony of the speaker, the Bible and the Catholic Catechism.

Learning By Doing

Learning By Doing

For deepening, what has been heard is implemented again and again in smaller or larger challenges. They sometimes come as a surprise, are always practical and varied.

Small Groups

Small Groups

The fixed small groups are another heart of Follow Me! . There everyone has the opportunity to express their personal thoughts, questions, wishes, problems etc. and to deepen the current topic.

Socialising

Socialising

Fellowship is an indispensable part of the Christian life. That’s why we taste this aspect at Follow Me! in a variety of ways 😉 eating together, coffee and cake, chilling out in the evening, exercising together and…

Follow Me! is an adventure: get to know God better, start seeing yourself through his eyes and step into the vision that HE has for YOUR life… He has big plans for you – discover the fullness!

This is where Follow Me! starts: to fan into flame the small fire that Jesus has started, by becoming a friend... in this way friendship with Jesus will grow and the desire to share that joy with others. Mgr Johannes Liesen, Bishop of Breda
For me, Follow Me! was something like the starter bag (available to marathon participants) for my walk with Jesus! Marina, Salzburg
I did Follow Me! first as a participant, then as a team member, and then as co-leader of a whole course. Follow Me! helped me to lay down my nets – in my case restrictions and reservations towards God – and to begin to follow Jesus wholeheartedly. Jakob Gfrerer, National Director of Alpha in Austria
