Every year the Archdiocese of St. Louis hosts leaders from parishes all over the diocese to discuss key issues for our Church today at the Annual Pastoral Assembly. This year the Assembly highlighted youth ministry as a vital part of the New Evangelization.
The message sent was one of dire need but also hope. Our young people are dying for a place to be loved and call home, and our Church has an incredible opportunity to be that place for them.
We have posted here the executive summary and a couple of videos from the event for you to look over or to share with others who may want (or need) to learn more about how youth ministry can help our parishes, our young people, our families, and our world. There are more helpful tools on our resource page as well.
