Join us on Wednesday, April 8 at 6:30pm for a Virtual Youth Night, hosted by Shai LaFleur (Youth Minister in Missoula) on YouTube Live:

Our goal is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, with joy, in all circumstances.

As St. Paul says in his second letter to Timothy:

“So you, my child, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And what you heard from me through many witnesses entrust to faithful people who will have the ability to teach others as well. Bear your share of hardship along with me like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.”

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, the Diocese of Helena Offices of Catholic Formation and Youth & Young Adult Ministry have gathered these online resources:

Online resources to share with your community:

  • Ministering through Covid-19: The National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM) has developed this page as a resource for youth ministers that includes webinars, documents, and links to other resources.
