Youth Ministry Leaders (YML)

YML Mission Statement

“Guided by the Holy Spirit, we are called to share in prayer, mutual support, collaboration, and education as we work and minister with and among the Youth of our Diocese.”

YML is comprised of those who Coordinate, Direct, and do Parish Youth Ministry in a parish (paid, volunteer, full or part-time) in the Diocese of St. Cloud. The gatherings are designed to provide support and guidance, prayer, professional growth, camaraderie and morale for those in Youth Ministry. Meetings are also opportunities for members to plan special events such as the Youth Rallies, Castaway, and other Retreats. Meetings typically are held once a month on Mondays during the school year. Coordinators of Faith Formation also share in Youth Ministry. Coordinators in Ministry in our diocese wear many hats. Because of this reality we are blending our gatherings with both Faith Formation and Youth Ministry Coordinators. The location of meetings rotates to hosting parishes. Parish Coordinators of Youth Ministry and Faith Formation are notified and reminded of dates and locations of meetings via email from the Consultant for Youth Ministry for the Diocese. You may also contact the Consultant for Youth Ministry and Adolescent Catechesis at CEM for times and dates. Please call 320-251-0111 with any questions you may have.
