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. This workshop will explore ways to help youth pray and discern their vocation. Topics include: 

  • Accompanying Youth Today
  • Becoming a Faith Companion
  • Guiding Youth in Discernment
  • Helping Youth Pray
  • Empowering a Community that Accompanies

The 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, coordinators of youth ministry, leaders in faith formation and catechists, Confirmation preparation leaders, and service/social concerns leaders.


The cost is $54.00, which includes lunch, handouts, and other materials.

Please join us for interactive learning, conversation, prayer and discovery around forming our young people as missionary disciples.

The day begins with registration and check-in at 8:30 AM and the workshop is from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM. Lunch is provided.
