with youth, ages 10-18, in both parish and school settings.  Our mission is to is to nurture and develop the faith life of our youth by equipping leaders with the knowledge, skills, practical tools and techniques for creative ministry, including confirmation.
Additionally, we provide training and certification for new youth ministers as well as hiring and personnel support for parishes in search of youth ministers. At the archdiocesan level, youth ministry provides retreats and other spiritual enrichment experiences for youth.
