Vision Statement:

The vision of Youth and Young Adult Ministry in the Diocese of Scranton is to empower members of the Young Church to answer the call of Baptism by living a life of intentional discipleship, and by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout their journey of faith.

Ministry for youth and young adults includes:

  • Providing resources, training, and consultation for assistance in the 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.
  • Diocesan retreat opportunities.
  • Coordinating diocesan participation in conferences and pilgrimages for youth and young adults.
