Why You Should Care About The Pastoral Assembly
Want to see support for youth ministry grow? Your voice is needed!￼ If you're a youth minister or youth leader, Archbishop Carlson is inviting you to this year's Annual Pastoral Assembly entitled, “The Young Church: Witness of Hope.”
What Is the Pastoral Assembly?
The Pastoral Assembly is Archbishop Carlson's invitation to church leaders and decision-makers from all around the Archdiocese of St. Louis to gather and discuss topics that are important to the church. For the first time ever, they will be discussing the importance of youth ministry programs and the effects they have on our church. This is a big deal! We want you to have a seat at the table so you can provide a positive witness and receive greater support for your youth ministry program.
How Can It Impact Your Parish Ministry?
How often do you desire to see stronger support for youth ministry? How would it effect your ministry if more people in your parish, and the archdiocese, actively supported our cause? You can play an active part in this! We are inviting you to attend and invite other leaders in your parish who would benefit from hearing this message. One of the goals for this event is to open the minds and hearts of all in attendance to see the value of investing in our youth. T his inspiring day will be great for those who feel alone or tired in their ministry and will empower others who want to stand with you.
Archbishop Carlson Will Be There To Offer His Support
In the Archdiocese of St. Louis, we are fortunate to have an archbishop who strongly supports youth ministry. At the assembly, you and all those gathered will have the opportunity to bring your questions, thoughts, or concerns to Archbishop Carlson.
We will hear from people who work directly in youth ministry and those impacted by it. The day will include keynotes, small group discussions, a youth ministry panel, lunch, and a chance for Archbishop Carlson to hear your voice.
