Youth Evangelization



Our vision for the youth, which includes anyone Baptism through 12th Grade, is that every youth is known, loved, and belongs to a community of disciples that accompanies them through the Process of Evangelization where they encounter Christ and become missionary disciples.


Here are just some of the ways that we can help the Youth Evangelists at your parish:


  • We can be a sounding board as you wrestle with a specific problem in youth evangelization in your parish, and we can help you brainstorm solutions.
  • We can help your team re-vision a Comprehensive approach to Youth Evangelization.

Half-Day, Full-Day, or Multiple-Day Retreats

Retreats are a great way for your Youth Evangelization team (both staff & volunteers) to:
  • Build trust and team cohesion
  • Spiritually refresh and renew themselves
  • Take a deep-dive into a spiritual or theological topic
  • Practical Training in an area of Youth Evangelization
  • We can lead a retreat for the ministers on your parish campus, or we can organize a retreat off-campus.

Youth Evangelization Apprenticeship

For any new (in the last 18 months) Youth Evangelist (YM, DRE/CRE) who is looking for additional and specific support in their new role. For more information, please contact Laura Potter.
