About Us

Part of the Office of Religious Education

Supports, empowers, affirms, and challenges

How we serve you

With Vision and Leadership

With Formation and Training, Consultation and Support

The Youth Ministry Division in the Office of Religious Education serves those who are in ministry with adolescents (age 10-18) in parish or school setting.  We support, empower, affirm, and challenge the efforts of parish communities in the areas of Young Adolescent Ministry (Jr. High) and Youth Ministry (High School, including Confirmation preparation).  We form and equip leaders with the knowledge, skills, practical tools, and techniques to serve effectively in their ministries with young people.

We help you develop the vision and leadership necessary to advance a comprehensive youth ministry in your parish that truly empowers teens to live as disciples, draws them to responsible participation in the Church, and fosters the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person. We do this through: Formation and Training, Consultation and support, Broad Experiences of Church

 

“Our young people deserve our best as we help them encounter God’s love in Jesus Christ.”

Did you know the Youth Ministry staff has a weekly blog? Every Wednesday, a new post is released! Our team also offers webinars designed to help ministry leaders, parents, and young adults navigate these uncertain times. Take a look at those pages.
