We are called to take up the Holy Father's challenge by focusing the church's ministry with adolescents on three essential goals drawn from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishop's document, Renewing the Vision. We are called to:
- Empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
- Draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the faith community.
- Foster the personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
The mission is to guide an support the pastor and lay ministers as they minister to youth and young adults, and design and implement local initiatives that foster the spiritual, intellectual and social development of young people.
