Youth Ministry works to foster the total person and spiritual growth of each young person. It seeks to draw junior high and high school youth to responsible participation in the life, mission, and works of the faith community.
Young Adult Ministry is a response to the need of young adults, an invitation to share their gifts with the larger community,and a challenge to live Gospel values in the world. Its purpose is to journey with young adults enabling them to take responsibility for their lives of faith, build community within an intergenerational church and to grow spiritually.
Ministry for youth and young adults includes:
- Providing resources, training and consultation for assistance in implementation of youth and young adult ministry. Continued support is provided through on-site visits and spiritual formation for Religious Education and Youth Ministry staff.
- Development of leadership and peer ministry programs on a diocesan level.
- Promotion and training of religious emblems counselors for boy scouts and girl scouts.
- Coordinating diocesan participation in conferences and pilgrimages for youth and young adults.
