The Office of Youth Ministry strives to empower young people and those who minister to them to live as disciples of Jesus in the Church and world.
Our approach is comprehensive, understanding that youth ministry works best when the entire parish is involved. The Office of Youth Ministry collaborates with parish leaders to draw youth into a deeper relationship with Jesus, and fuller participation in the life, mission, and ministry of the Church. By supporting parishes in the ministry of welcoming, engaging, and forming youth, and by providing effective resources to adult Youth Leaders, we hope to create communities where needs are met, people are supported, families are strengthened, and Christ is served.
