Accompaniment is our model for ministry with youth and their families. God began the conversation with young people; our job is to pay attention to what God is doing in the lives of young people, walk with youth as they grow in discipleship, and help them discern their response to God’s plan for their life. Topics include: 1) Accompanying Young People Today; 2) becoming a Faith companion and 3) Helping Youth Pray, Discern and Explore their Vocation.
This workshop is guided by the 2018 Synod on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment. It is designed for all parish leaders whose ministries touch the lives of adolescents and their families – including pastors, deacons, pastoral associates, coordinator of youth ministry, leaders in faith formation and catechists, confirmation preparation leaders, and service/social concerns leaders.
There are two dates and two locations:
Oct. 12 at St. Robert Bellarmine Church, Windsor Locks, CT
Oct. 13 at St. Thomas Becket Church, Cheshire, CT
