The Department of Youth Faith Formation encompasses children’s and adolescent faith formation, and youth ministry. Collaboratively, we work with parishes and parish leaders to support young people and their families from baptism to 12th grade. We desire children, youth and parents to encounter Christ and grow in their Catholic faith. The Department provides training, resources, consultation, networking and events.
“Being a catechist means that you ‘are a catechist,’ not that you ‘work as a catechist.’ It’s an entire way of being.”Pope Francis, December 2021
