Regarding the Resumption of In-Person
Religious Education and Youth Ministry

People have asked whether April 20th is a firm date for the resumption of in-person religious education and youth ministry. This initial date was set in light of information we had at that time. Unfortunately, as of today no specific date can be assigned for when we believe in-person religious education and youth ministry can resume in our parishes. Please know that the staff of Department of Youth Faith Formation (Catechetical and Youth Ministry) are here to help you through this time. Please let us know if you need any assistance.

For more information regarding our diocesan response you can review the Faith Forward Returning to Public Worship: Executive Summary webpage.

The Department of Youth Faith Formation will continue sending out tools to parishes to help families share faith at home, including a weekly PDF that can be forwarded to parents and guardians.
