I have been the Director of Youth Ministry for the Diocese of Baker, OR, for just over 18 months. We’ve taken great strides in fulfilling our Office’s mission to:
Equip, train, and provide resources to parishes, schools, and missions throughout the Diocese of Baker so that we all may fulfill the Great Commission transmitting the Roman Catholic faith in accordance with the magisterium under the direction of the bishop.
As part of that mission, in conjunction with Barry Metzentine of the Office of Evangelization & Catechesis, we set out to take our annual Ministry Training Conference (The Evangelization & Catechesis Symposium) on the road and head out to the various deaneries to provide further training and assistance to the various parish ministries throughout our diocese. We anticipated doing a Fall training and a Spring training, as well as the Symposium. This was too great a task to successfully complete.
Recognizing the difficulty in doing 2 Deanery Workshops a year, on top of the Symposium and other meetings, events, and visits that our offices undertake, the Offices of Evangelization, Catechesis, & Youth Ministry are proud to present some ‘Spring Training’ for your personal and spiritual formation in ministry. May they be edifying to you and your ministry.
