The Youth & Young Adult Ministries Office believes in the young Church of our local communities and works to advance ministry to youth and young adults through advocacy and leadership development. The office also organizes direct service to the young Church by organizing diocesan retreat programs for middle school youth, high school teens, and young adults in their 20’s and 30’s. They promote Catholic Scouting programs throughout the diocese and sponsor the annual awards banquet “Saints in the City” to honor young disciples in our parishes and schools.
