MOMENTUM: Rebuilding the Church, Forming Disciples with a Missionary Spirit

National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry
Virtual Conference – $35
Wednesday, April 28 | 1-5 pm ET

How has the COVID-19 crisis changed how we minister to and with young people today? What new insights, strategies, and skills are necessary to navigate a new social order slowly emerging from the other side of a historic and world changing pandemic? How can we engage young people to become missionaries within their own communities and social groups? And what impact will all of these factors have upon what it means to be Church in the years ahead? NFCYM join together with ministry colleagues across the country to explore these questions.  Purchase tickets.
