Youth Ministry Convocation

March 9 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

As a youth minister, do you ever feel alone in your mission?  Do you feel yourself struggling under the weight of your ministry?  Well, you are far from alone in this blessed call for your life.  You have a community of fellow ministers, a Diocese, and a loving God who are all here to support you!  The Diocese of Harrisburg welcomes ALL adults working in youth ministry to gather to renew both their call to serve young people and their membership as part of larger ministry community.  Attendees will receive many opportunities to bolster their mission including:

  • Receive spiritual renewal through talks and formation
  • Spend time with our Lord in Mass and Eucharistic Adoration
  • Pray with other youth ministers and find support in your common experience
  • Exchange ministry ideas
  • Learn from experienced ministers
  • Receive updates and logistical pointers from the Diocese
  • Learn more about upcoming events and opportunities for both you and your youth
  • Meet the Director for Youth and Young Adult Ministries and the diocesan support staff that are here to help you
  • Form community with your fellow ministers over a meal
  • Find rest and fun for yourself!

All those working with middle school and high school students via ministry are welcome to attend regardless of position, including full time and part time ministers, volunteers, pastors/chaplains, and high school campus ministers.  Please RSVP by Monday February 26th.  Any questions can be directed to Zack Haney zhaney@hgbdiocese.org.
