For many years now we have had a Youth Council with the Office of Religious Education and Youth Ministry. With the re-organization in our office the work of the council has been divided out between our office (now the Office of Faith Formation) and the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry. The Office of Faith Formation will now be working with a group of young people, grades 10-12, to organize and put on youth Confirmation retreats. Some of the council from last year wish to stay with this program but we do need new members. An application is included with this email.
These young people will be getting valuable information on witness talks, leadership development, facilitation, and organizing a day for teens. I hope that you can recommend someone from your parish. It is a wonderful experience for these young people to share their faith and grow with others of the young church community.
If there are questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
