Pope Francis in his message for World Youth Day 2018

Have your say Synod 2018









A meeting of youth will take place in the Vatican from March 19-24, 2018, ahead of the 15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in October.

The topic: Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment.
About 300 young people from five continents are expected to take part in this initial gathering, to produce a summary document and recommendations to be presented at the Synod.

Can youth in our diocese be part of these discussions?
Social media.

There is a Facebook page, and multilingual Twitter and Instagram accounts, all connected with the hashtag #Synod2018. Youth from around the world ages 16-29 are invited to share questions, stories and comments.

Thank you! 

Our 2016 Youth Ministry Think Tank at St. Louis Parish, Louisdale brought together youth ministry advocates from across our diocese.  
Facilitator Anne Walsh led everyone through exercises of exploration, discovery and planning. 

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.
