Accompanying Youth on their Journey of Faith & Discernment

Sat Sep 22nd, 2018 - 8:30 am to 2:30 pm
2018 National Workshop Series for Catholic Leaders Presented by the Center for Ministry Development Sponsored by the Departments of Lifelong Faith Formation & Youth & Young Adult Ministry

The Church will have to initiate everyone – priests, religious and laity – into this ‘art of accompaniment’ which teaches us to remove our sandals before the sacred ground of the other (cf. Ex 3:5). . . . Genuine spiritual accompaniment always begins and flourishes in the context of service to the mission of evangelization. . . Missionary disciples accompany missionary disciples.”

Evangelii Gaudium 169, 173

So let’s get initiated!!  As a diocese, let’s commit to examining and re-formulating our ministry with youth and young adults through the lens of accompaniment.  I’m certain that everyone in ministry already knows SOMETHING about what it means to accompany young people along their journey of faith and life, and I also believe that all of us can learn MORE.  So let’s share what we know and explore new ideas together!  I invite you, and all those you minister with at your parish or school, to join us for an important ministry gathering:
