Bishop Austin Vetter of the Diocese of Helena has instructed all parishes to suspend all youth ministry and religious education gatherings or classes through August 8.

We strongly encourage our priests, youth ministers, DRE’s, and catechists to find creative ways to serve and teach our people through this trying time. God has gifted us with technology that allows us to stay connected even when isolated. Use this gift and your creativity to continue our mission!

To that end, here are some resources for you…
