The Diocesan Office of Youth Ministry, as part of the Secretariat for Education and Formation, advocates for the role and needs of young people in the Catholic Church and in our community. We work to promote the role of the Church and the Gospel in the lives of young people, by making it accessible and relatable to middle and high school aged youth.
We promote a comprehensive approach to youth ministry, as articulated in Renewing the Vision, and we provide leadership resources, services and conferences for the education and formation of the youth and those who serve them.
In response to the Gospel, and in pursuit of our mission and vision, we believe in the dignity and giftedness of each human, particularly in the gifts and charisms of young people. We celebrate the richness of diversity and work to foster the baptismal call of each person to discipleship and ministry.
