Youth

With its primary goal to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in this modern world, the Office of Youth Ministry offers opportunities for service and mission in the local parishes and the wider community. It focuses on: calling young people to be evangelizers to all age groups, drawing them further into the Catholic faith by effective catechesis and a compassionate presence to at-risk youth, and fostering spiritual growth through Diocesan gatherings, national youth conferences, and international world youth days.
