October Catechetical Leaders’ & Youth Ministry Meeting    
This year our catechetical leaders will look different and will be meeting in new ways so that the partnership between the Office of Child & Family Catechesis and the Office of Adolescent Catechesis & Discipleship can serve and support leaders who oversee both age groups as well as bringing CLs and YMs together to collaborate and accompany in more international ways.  Our kick-off meeting for the year will include Andrea Slaven and Bob Walters as they share more information on accompanying our children and teens towards discipleship.  We will try to address questions and concerns that you may have from what you heard at the Vicariate Ministry Leaders Meetings (see below).  You can also post your questions and concerns on this form:
