New Youth Ministers Formation Gathering

Do you have a new employee or volunteer coordinating the youth ministry program in your parish or faith community? Pastoral Assistants of Youth Ministry that are beginning in ministry or have 3 years or less experience in this archdiocese are invited to gather as a community to learn together the practical, interpersonal and spiritual practices necessary within ministry. Journeying together through the year, the New Ministers Formation of OYYAE is designed to provide: 

  • reflection on the relevant church documents
  • connections/community between those new to youth ministry
  • practical skills for ministry & leadership
  • orientation to archdiocesan policies, procedures and personnel

The day will include a light continental breakfast and lunch. You are also invited to attend the Leadership Gathering from 6-8 with Guest Presenter Michael Thiesen. Then at 8pm there is a Social.

You are invited to stay the night and come to the Fall Gathering the next day!  The actual cost for staying is $85. Suggested Donation $45, please pay to cover costs as possible. The OYYAE remains committed to providing ongoing quality formation throughout the year. Donate as you are able, please do not let the cost prohibit you from attending.
