Adolescent Faith Formation

The Office of Adolescent Faith Formation provides programs that relate to adolescent faith formation and assists faith formation leaders through a variety of media and methods to share the “Good News.”

The Three Main Goals of Youth Ministry Are:

  • to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today
  • to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community
  • to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person
