Youth and Young Adult Ministry

The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry assists individuals, parishes and schools to help young people develop an enduring relationship with Jesus and discover their place in the Church and in the modern world. Please pray for us as we strive to evangelize, educate, inspire, encourage and support all the youth and young adults of the Diocese.

“Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment.”

The 15th Ordinary Assembly of the Synod of Bishops will take place in Rome in October of 2018. The theme is “Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment.” A preparatory document (PDF) has been created by the Vatican to begin the discussions around this topic. Bishop Folda would like the leaders in parishes to reflect on this issue and provide suggestions on how we can better engage our young people.
