The Call to HOLINESS


The Call to WORSHIP

The Call to ACTION

  • Share your passion for serving our youth within the models of Youth Ministers, Scouts, Sports and Youth Groups.
  • Grow in your Catholic faith and in your capacity to be a more effective role model
  • Develop a better understanding of Catholic Youth Ministry and your role as a Youth Minister
  • Lead  and more fully serve youth, providing growth opportunties for the "Whole Child"

As adults we are witnessing not only to our own faith commitment, but we are also trying to help the youth  make a personal faith commitment.

Lay Apostolate Formation is the process by which we, as Catholic Scout Leaders, Parents, Coaches and Youth leaders create greater awareness of our role to "seek the kingdom of God by engaging in temporal affairs and by ordering them according to the plan of God." (Dogmatic Constitution on the Church-Lumen Gentium, 31). We fulfill the role of the lay Apostolate through our involvement in the secular realm giving us the opportunity to carry out the necessary task of evangelizing the secular world, particularly through our involvement with children and adolescents.

Lay Apostolate Formation  program is designed to help all adults who work with youth come to a better understanding of the role of religious faith in their lives. The program is designed to be experiential and not overly didactic. Through a series of guided reflections, both the individual and the group examine Scripture passages to ascertain how God is calling each to respond.
