Our mission to share the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with young people does not end because of a pandemic. It only becomes more important.

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…
