DRE, Youth Ministry, PSR Coordinator Survey

To help us develop an updated manual that can be used by all we need your feedback. Please take time to complete this survey! We would like to have all responses by January 3.

We are here to help!


We have created a page just for DREs and Youth Ministers to share resources, videos, documents and so much more. This is to replace the shared google drive. If you have resources you would like to add to the site or are looking for specific resources, use the forms on the page to request and submit!

Many days I end up in meetings or on the road visiting locations so to help make it easier to book a phone call use the link below. These meetings will be automatically added to my calendar. If you are wanting me to come visit your parish, please call or email Genevieve Stevenson to schedule a visit.

Confirmation Retreats for 2023

We have TWO opportunities for young people to attend a Confirmation Retreat and both will be led by young adults.

These retreats are not required but instead an opportunity for parishes and individuals that are looking for a way to intentionally prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

  • January 28 will be led by NET Retreat Team in Jefferson City
  • February 18 will be led by Benedictine Retreat Team in Monroe City

The cost of both retreats is $20 a person to help cover the retreat team and lunch.

DREYM Team Chat

Please consider joining one of the times each month.

  • Day time chat: 1st Wed @ 10am
  • Evening chat: 2nd Mon @ 7pm

Upcoming Dates include:

  • Monday, November 14 @ 7pm
  • Wednesday, December 7 @ 10am
  • Monday, December 12 @ 7pm

These chats are a way for us to check in with one another on a regular basis. The first few minutes we share updates from the office and then we spend time sharing successes and challenges in the ministry.

In October groups shared about prayer buddy's they were using in PSR with built positive community, challenges with getting youth bought in with youth ministry and how a parish was successful getting football players to Confirmation.

Zoom links can now easily be accessed on the NEW DRE YM Resource Page. (password: DREYMteam)
