Youth Ministers Resources

Youth In Service

The Office of Justice and Peace and the Office of Youth Ministry will be co-hosting a workshop on Friday, October 20th, 2017 here at the Chancery office from 1-3 p.m. in regards to charitable giving and action with youth. There is much that we can prayerfully consider before engaging in acts of charity with young people.  How do we choose who to give to?  What Catholic organizations are there out there that we could be supporting?  Is our giving just and respectful of the genuine needs of those who are requiring our help?  Please plan to join us for this quick afternoon session.  Please see the poster below for more details.
