Christ is the Center of our Confirmation Ministries with Youth

Posted on Categories:Uncategorized

I am excited to announce that I have been working in partnership with dioceses to explore the potential for parishes to transform their Confirmation ministries in ways that promote encounter with Christ, engagement of youth in the parish, family faith sharing, and accompaniment. I have been amazed at the creativity of parishes and the commitment of ministry leaders for forming youth as disciples. These workshops and projects are based on a vision for catechesis and accompaniment drawing upon the direction provided by Christus Vivit and the Directory for Catechesis.  This includes an exploration of a Eucharistic vision for parish life and sacramental ministries in support of the National Eucharistic Revival. 

These partnerships include diocesan projects, clergy workshops, as well as conference presentations and day-long workshops for parish leadership.  Workshops include the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, The Southeast Catechist’s Conference in Atlanta, Dioceses of Altoona-Johnstown, Cleveland, and Victoria, and the Archdioceses of Detroit, and San Antonio. I was also asked to be the author for the Confirmation article written for the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops:  “Christ is Alive in Confirmation Ministries.”
