Engaging a New Generation

Frank Mercadante's presentation based on his book Engaging a New Generation, introduced the core characteristics of the Millennial Generation teens and the pastoral implications, where the operational and ministerial borders are expanding far beyond traditional youth ministry.

Here is what youth ministers from the Diocese of Manchester had to say:

Frank Mercadante's seminar was very informative. It helped me understand what happens to us Catholics as generations go on, and why we have difficulties keeping youth within the faith, and also provided ways to solve these difficulties. It was really a time filled with the Holy Spirit. ~ Deize S., St. Patrick Parish, Milford

This was a very informative seminar. Frank is down to earth and really knows the youth. He obviously has put much time and effort into knowing how these Millennials tick. It is wonderful that he will be speaking to the priests. Youth Ministers work with the youth day-to-day and it is important for priests to stay connected to the youth as well. This seminar will give a greater understanding of where the millennials are at. We all need to be praying for and keep connected to our youth, they are our future. Thank you again so much for this opportunity. ~ Janna A., Parish of the Holy Spirit, Keene 

The presentation was amazing and extremely thought provoking. Frank took us full circle from yesteryear to today's generation and spoke profoundly on their wants, needs and desires then mixed his sense of humor in for a thoroughly enjoyable day! ~ Joanne M., St. Luke the Evangelist Parish, Plaistow
