The Catholic Church will continue to grow through the leadership of our young people. Join us as we foster leadership skills, build confidence and ensure the future of the Faith through our many youth programs.
Many of our youth and young adult ministries are parish based. We provide a range of support and resources to help these programs take root, grow and thrive. We provide training, recruiting and networking opportunities for ministers, as well as parents and participants.
Working in true partnership, we empower our parishes and young adult leaders to network, share and provide support for their faith journeys. It is our goal to empower parishes and schools to take responsibility for ministry to, by, for and with Youth & Young Adults.
Come join us! The Diocese of Harrisburg is heading to World Youth Day 2023! Come celebrate with our Holy Father Pope Francis in Lisbon, Portugal. Experience a week of unity, fun, and a deep encounter with Jesus Christ. Along the way, we will also be stopping in Fatima to visit the apparition sites of Our Lady. See the “Retreats” section below for details.
