A Workshop for Pastors, Religious, and Pastoral Staff
Thursday October 20, 2022
7 pm – 9 pm Eastern or 7 pm – 9 pm Mountain
In these ever-changing times, envisioning our ministries for young people – youth, young adults, and families and children can be a daunting task if we have struggled to provide leadership for sustained approaches to ministry. Whether your parish is taking the opportunity to journey with NETWORK Leader Seminars or not, or you don’t know where to begin in your ministry, come and learn best practices, skills and opportunities to IGNITE your pastoral vision for young people in your parish and community.
This workshop is geared to pastors, religious, and pastoral staff.
