STL Gathering for Youth Ministers

This school year we are continuing to gather with fellow youth leaders for fellowship, prayer, and collaboration. We have already had three gatherings. The first was in August at the OYM office, the second was a fun-filled fellowship at Rosalita’s Cantina, and our most recent was a special gathering hosted by Kristina Radley at Duschene High School for both youth and campus ministers. Last year we invited campus ministers to join us for the first time and both gatherings have sparked great conversation and collaboration. We meet with youth ministers every month to discuss various topics in youth ministry. Campus ministers are always welcome to join; twice a year our gatherings will focus solely on youth minister and campus minister collaboration. Read more »

Families are invited to join us at the closing Mass at 4 PM. This retreat is open to all scouts and ideal for scouts working on Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII programs.

Event or Page Image

September 14-16, 2018 Beaumont 

Join scouts from the entire Archdiocese for a weekend of faith, discovery, games, live music and more! Encounter Weekend is the perfect way to bring your scouts into relationship with Christ by the activities, community, and sacraments that will be offered. This year's theme "Seize the Summit" follows the journey of faith for a younger person as they are ignited by the love of Christ. This will be modeled by our staff, and showcased by our weekend patron, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, who famously said, "Verso l'alto" or "To the Heights" towards God and the voice of Christ. Adoration, live band, games, engaging faith discussion, what more could you ask for!

Sign your unit or individual scouts up today! Read more »
