Youth Leader Orientation 2020
The Office of Youth Discipleship & Evangelization hosted an orientation for new/veteran youth leaders within our diocese on September 10-11, 2020. This new annual event was for anyone who is responsible for parish youth ministry or religious education efforts with youth in grades 7-12. The goal was to introduce the participants to the various resources available to them throughout the diocese (including diocesan events, policies and guidelines, etc.), meet other diocesan staff, and network with other youth leaders from around the diocese.
All the sessions were recorded and are linked below, so if you were not able to attend you now have the ability to attend virtually, or reference specific sessions.
