Office for Youth and Young Adult Ministry

Connecting youth with Christ

We humbly stand before God desiring that everything we do bring us closer in our relationship with Jesus Christ and deeper in our understanding of Church and what it means to be Church.

Our office works to foster a comprehensive holistic and collaborative approach to total Youth & Young Adult Ministry. With this in mind, we hope to empower parishes and schools to take responsibility for ministry to, by, for & with Youth & Young Adults.
