Resource to aid parish youth ministry

By Linsey Hoard

The diocesan Office of New Evangelization, Catechesis and Family Life is announcing a new resource to help parishes in their youth ministry efforts.

Beginning in September, the diocesan staff will be offering guidance and resources to parish leaders hoping to improve or establish youth ministry programs. Our goal is to help diocesan parishes create programs that work for them.

We are not looking to mold your program into our vision of what youth ministry should be or expect you to adopt something that is not right for your parish. We will make suggestions for what programs would fit your needs and help guide you through the process of starting a youth ministry program, how to build and maintain a program for long term success and how to continue to evaluate your program to make sure you are communicating your message in the most effective and meaningful way.

We hope to work with two to four parishes per year. In addition to youth ministry consulting, we will also be offering more youth ministry training events to supplement the Youth Ministry Training Day offered in May of last year.

For more information or if you would like to participate in youth ministry consulting, please email me at linseyh@scdiocese.org or call (712) 233-7561.

Keep your eyes open; more resources will be available soon on the diocesan website, scdiocese.org. We will notify everyone via our office ypdates when they are ready. If you would like to be added to our office updates, contact Kari Smith at karis@scdiocese.org.

Linsey Hoard is assistant director of youth catechesis and evangelization for the diocese.
