DRE YM RESOURCE PAGE
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!
BOOKING A MEETING
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.

Viva Cristo Rey: Global Celebration of Young People November 20
Join us for our first Celebration of Young People will be at Our Lady of Lourdes in Columbia, MO
This event is great for families, friends, youth groups, confirmation classes. It will be a beautiful day filled with fellowship, reflection and prayer.
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)
