You Give Them Something to Eat is a 70-page text that can be used by dioceses, eparchies, parishes, youth groups and organizations to assist in reflections on youth ministry, to identify strengths and weaknesses in current approaches, and to build an outreach ministry that meets the needs of young people. The publication is available for free download from CCCB publications and includes a preface by Bishop Brian Dunn.

Youth Office Sends Special Thank you!

During the month of March, The NET Encounter team visited our Diocese. We had some AWESOME retreats in Cheticamp, Margaree, Port Hood and Sydney Mines. Leading up to our NET week, there was risk of cancelling because of the number of retreats but Cheticamp, Port Hood and Margaree, in very short time, under the gun, with hours on the phone, and a lot of hard work, scheduled in our retreats and got it done. Thank you so much to all Parish communities involved, to all the volunteers, the families, priests, and couples that cooked meals, drove kids, organized hospitality, but especially to those who hosted the missionaries in your homes. Over 120+ kids had an amazing experience as Church, and heard the awesome message of Jesus. When we come together Great things happen.
