If this is your first time dealing with youth group, I want to say welcome and know that you and your child are welcomed. During our Covid-19 pandemic, your family have been in my thoughts and prayers. I know we are not back to “normal” but your child’s health and well-being are top priority. We have been able to resume mass with some guidelines to protect all that are gathered there. Youth Group is allowed to meet, but with limitations. Please know you and your child’s safety is our top priority. Please review the Guidelines and complete the Visitor's Screening Tool form (below) each time your child attends Youth Group.
We use the Remind app for High School Youth Group Communication.
Just send a text to 81010 and text this message: @fa283.
This link https://www.remind.com/join/fa283 includes the class code, so anyone who has it can join our class instantly.
I will also send post cards as a reminder of upcoming events, registrations, or youth group meetings.
I can always be reached by e-mail at email@example.com, 270-826-2096, or if you are able to do the remind app, you can message me.
If you or our spouse would like to volunteer, you are required to do the Safe Environment and can be found on the Diocese of Owensboro web site.
As part of its efforts to protect minors and the vulnerable, the Diocese of Owensboro requires Safe Environment compliance on a five-year cycle for clergy, religious, employees, and all volunteers working with minors. The diocese uses http://www.cmgconnect.org, developed by Catholic Mutual Group, to coordinate its compliance requirements.
Please prayerfully consider applying for leadership team, but please keep the following points in mind:
This very important! If selected to be a member of the team, are you willing to commit to being involved in leadership roles in our Youth Ministries? This means being present and be responsible for helping to plan, lead and evaluate. We would also expect that you serve as a role model through your relationship with Jesus Christ, through you actions outside of our Youth Ministry setting, and weekly attend Mass.
Forms are due by Friday 31, 2020
Holy Name of Jesus Youth Ministry exists to aid families in developing religious formation for High School students. Our Youth Ministry strives to adhere to the components for a comprehensive ministry (ministry of advocacy, catechesis, community life, evangelization, justice and service, leadership development, pastoral care, and prayer and worship) as outlined by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops in “Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry.”
