Youth Ministry


On January 23rd, this Working Group met, with a newly expanded membership representation from many serving in these ministry areas around the diocese, with a desire to follow up on the findings of the gathering events held last year.  

We began discussing future plans and goals.  Two areas of focus arose:

facilitating and enabling ways to connect those serving as leaders in these ministries, both online and face to face, to share resources and ideas
future events to help connect families and youth around the diocese.

Two sub-groups were formed, to enable these separate ministry areas to explore and plan more specifically for their area of ministry.  Their work will be on-going in the coming months.

The Working Group will be meeting again in the Spring to re-connect with how things are beginning to proceed. 

If you are interested in either of these ministry areas, you are invited to join the Facebook Group as per the link information below to begin connecting with those in the Sub-Group and others throughout the diocese. 

Should  you have questions or concerns about any of this information, please contact one of the Co-Chairs.
