Staff members from the Department of Youth & Young Adult Ministry will meet with your parish to help you begin or strengthen your ministry with youth or young adults. We will help you evaluate current efforts, assess needs, set goals, recruit leaders and design effective strategies.
Training by Request
If the junior or senior high youth ministry leaders, catechists, or leaders in young adult ministry in your parish (or cluster, region or vicariate) need training, we will design the program and bring it to you!
Peer Ministry Retreats for Youth
Book a retreat for young people in your parish, vicariate or cluster! Choose from a menu of retreat topics and members of our diocesan retreat team will come to you.
Retreat Ministry Resources
Find resources and ideas for retreats here and in our mailings, or call for help and advice when designing retreats.
Mailings full of Resources!
We send periodic mailings (full of great information and resources!) to every pastor, catechetical leader and youth ministry leader. Contact us to get on the mailing list!
