The youth of our diocese bring to our faith their gifts, energy, and fresh ideas. In order to nurture these gifts, we need to invite young people to participate in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.

Here are some ways that the youth of our diocese can get involved and how we can keep those entrusted to our care safe in doing so.
